    Just found a user with a very outdated joomla 1.5 website, they got hacked, removed all the code that was sending spam but it happened again last night, it keeps keep uploading files even though I've locked down permisions on all the files.

    Is there a way to shut off all php mail so that scripts can't send mail without blocking the users smtp email?

    I want to shut it completely down until I can negotiate with the user to upgrade, or build them a new site that is more secure.

    I tried that. isn't working. Mail still gets sent out. I have the account suspended right now while I search for infected files, but ... I'd like to figure out a way to stop all php mail from getting sent for future reference also.
