    The CPANEL password is somehow getting hacked from a user account on a given domain ( and a scammer is setting forwarders on some key email accounts to leak sensitive info.

    Can we disable setting up of forwarders by the cpanel user or the individual users on a single domain?

    As I am the root user, I can change file permissions on a given file if you advise me the process.

    You can disable features for a specific account by creating a new feature list, modifying it to disable certain features, and then ensuring that feature list is associated with the package assigned to the account:

    Feature Manager - Version 70 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    To prevent a cPanel user from creating forwarders through cPanel, you'd need to disable the following features:

    Email Domain Forwarding
    Email Filtering Manager
    Forwarder Manager

    You may also want to consider disabling the Update Notification Preferences feature to prevent the user from updating the account's contact preferences.

    Thank you.
