    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Mailroute.net - they have a filter product that seems like a good solution for those of us using one or more shared servers.

    I have been instructed by the mailroute.net team to lock down my server to block abuse.

    I asked Hostgator how to perform these steps and they shut me down. -
    I think that the Email Authentication panel in cpanel could help me.

    I would like suggestions on how to do this. I am not prepared to dump Hostgator...Just yet.

    I am experienced with cpanel, but not with mail server lockdowns (obviously) :)

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    You will need to setup a filtering rule as suggested in their guide because you do not have root access to the server. You can setup the rule using the "Account Level Filtering" option in cPanel:

    Thank you.
