Hello

I am writing a script for automatic account suspension when it reaches the max emails hour and exceeded the max defers.

To facilitate the procedure, I need the user account to be written to exim_mainlog.

Are there ways to do this? I'm not finding material that explains how to do it.

Thank you.

Hello,

You could utilize the following WHM API 1 function when developing your script if you needed to find the username associated with a domain name:

Code:
whmapi1 listaccts search=domain.tld searchtype=domain
The account username associated with the domain name is listed under "user" in the output.

Thank you.

My script works as follows:

1) I extract the domain name from the / var / log / exim_mainlog file by searching for max defer or max mail hour.

2) I keep the domain name in a variable

3) I execute the suspension of the account via script.

PERFECT ! :)
