    Why am I getting clients complaining of such un-necessary blocks?

    Sample:

    200.52.92.166 # lfd: 5 (webmail,cpanel) login failures from 200.52.92.166 - Wed Nov 8 17:34:44 2006
    168.144.108.18 # lfd: 5 (pop3d) login failures from 168.144.108.18 - Wed Nov 8 19:55:50 2006
    24.184.144.232 # lfd: 5 (whm) login failures from 24.184.144.232 - Wed Nov 8 20:39:08 2006
    12.156.88.177 # lfd: 5 (ftpd) login failures from 12.156.88.177 - Wed Nov 8 22:28:09 2006
    59.95.230.119 # lfd: 5 (pop3d) login failures from 59.95.230.119 - Wed Nov 8 22:33:01 2006

    So many are pop3d blocks, all "5"

    What's the deal with that?

    After '5' login attempts/failures they are blocked. You can adjust the setting in the configuration file.

    It would indicate that your clients are having a tough time remembering their usernames/passwords....

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. Time to educate your clients on remembering their passwords, otherwise what's the difference betwene their activity and a hackers?
