    Hello i have a customer which has an email user that is sending spam (with an infected computer i presume), what i do is suspend the account from the cpanel email admin, but the same user later has its email account unsuspended and sending spam again.
    Is there a way to force the suspension as root?
    I believe they just access cpanel with their user and unsuspend the email account. I have warned the user to stop this action, or i will suspend the entire account (something i dont want to use unless as a last resort), but they claim they dont do that.

    Thats why i wanted to ask if there is some sort of work around for this to force the suspension.

    Regards

    Hello madpato,

    I'm looking into a small feature that would help you here, so that you don't need to suspend sending email on the entire cPanel account. I have 2 questions for you.

    As root, you want to prevent your customers from unsuspending their email account. More specifically:
    * Are you wanting to suspend the ability to send email, or suspend the ability to even log into the email account?
    * Are you using UAPI to do the suspension or are you going into the cPanel interface?
