    Hello,

    We are doing the same and updating to customer/user but Spamming from that email id again started happening, hence we wish to disable the mailing services for that particular user so that if anybody changes the password from panel then also they can not send any mails.

    Change the cPanel password, change the passwords of all email accounts in that account, then tell the customer the new passwords, and also tell them that if any spam is sent from their account you will close their account.
    Then if they still send spam you close their account.

    The situation is different. Mail Merge is a client's site, so the password change will not work. In your account settings can not be set to 0 in the limit of time mailing. I also have a value of 1 is not satisfied.
    The question remains: How to disable email service for one account?

    Disable the mail directory inside /home/username. Change the ownership to root and chmod to 000.

    Cheers!!!
