I don't host email addresses on my server and only send messages (to external email addresses) from online forms. Can I disable POP3 and IMAP services?

REASON:
I have aliases setup for several clients, forwarding incoming messages to their external email addresses (i.e., gmail, aol, etc). Many of the messages forwarded are spam and now my server has been blacklisted by several online services such as hotmail/outlook, gmail and aol. Any suggestions???

Many thanks in advance

Hello,

Yes, you can browse to "WHM Home »Service Configuration » Service Manager" and disable the POP3 and IMAP services.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you.
