    In order to allow smtp connections I have to disable the smtp restriction for whole server. Is there any way that I can individually enable the smtp for the requested client?

    Hi,

    Yes, you can do that through CSF configuration file. Check the for paramater like "SMTP_ALLOWUSER" in the csf.conf file.. and add your user here.
    Give it a try.

    Hello,

    As noted, it's not possible to configure WHM >> SMTP Restrictions on a per-user basis. However, you can use a third-party application such as CSF to implement the same type of protection on a per-user basis:

    SMTP Connection Refused for any Account Except root

    Thank you.
