    Several accounts are getting emails with virus attachements being sent from faked email accounts like this:
    name@domain.comrealname@realdomain.com
    The email origin is realname@realdomain.com, but the email client shows it as coming from name@domain.com. Usually this is a real account from domain.com, and the users open it.
    There is a way to filter/block the kind of messages?

    Sure, it's a hot issue I just released out
    If you're a root administrator create a new file into the directory /usr/local/cpanel/etc/exim/sysfilter/options
    and add a custom rule for realname@realdomain.com , see full details in this document
    For a specific cPanel account: see this document

    Hi @mfigge

    As suggested by @Shood the exim sysfilter option might be best if you want to block them from the whole server (not on an account or user level basis)

    Let us know if you run into any issues or have any questions about the documentation!


    Thanks!
