    We've had a server overcome with PHP.Mail.Bot malware on a few WordPress sites. We've followed best practices to update core WordPress files, themes, plugins, passwords (cpanel, ftp, wordpress admin, database). We believe we have it plugged now, but during this the bot was flooding the Exim queue with tens of thousands of emails.

    Is there any way we can be notified when the Exim queue reaches a certain limit?

    Yes, You can setup custom scripts for the exim mail queue alert and you have installed CSF firewall on your server then you can setup it with the CSF. Change LF_QUEUE_ALERT limit in CSF configuration and restart CSF, You will get mail queue alert from CSF.

    Hello,

    There are no native options with cPanel/WHM that will alert you when your queue has a certain number of emails, however there are third-party solutions such as CSF with this type of functionality.

    Thank you.
