Hi out there in Cpanel Land

I am going on holiday for about a month (I AM retired... so don't get nasty :mad: ) .

As I shall be away from the internet ( and much of what we call civilisation) for most of that time, I am wondering if there is a way a SWITCH OFF e-mails coming in to my domain.

I had a look at what was on offer in the menu, and the best I culd do was .. Spam Assassin, and spambox.

Any ideas ? :confused:

Thanks and regards from sunny Spain.

Hello David

Thank you for responding.

The reason is simply a question of numbers. :eek:

I think that after a month the INBOX might well be overflowing, and have an adverse effect on real mail (...as I do seem to receive my fair share of spam)
OR
after my return from holiday, I might haveto spend a good deal of time reading and deleting to sort out the rubbish from the real stuff.

That's my dilemma, and why I would like some temporary ability to prevent mail entering the domain. Is it theoretically possible ? If not, then I will just have to cope.

Regards from sunny Spain

To block all email to your domain, you can set up an account-level filter (or for an individual email account, user-level filter). You can create a rule that if the message has not previously been delivered to Fail with Message and your message can be something like "I'm currently on vacation, try again in a month."
