    With horde it is possible to send email from a cpanel demo account. From Neomail it is not possible. How do I prevent horde to send emails when it is a demo account?

    Another question, is it really safe to provide an cpanel demo account, mainly from a spam perspective? Should I do anything more than just setting the cpanel account in demo mode to be really sure it cant be used for spamming?

    To make a demo completely secure, you would have to remove all links, and redirect them to explanations of the software. However, you can edit the theme files to make any links that you feel could compromise security link to an explanation page about the feature.

    Seems to me that removing the links does nothing to assure &complete security.& Any spammer familiar with CPanel will be able to guess the URL, even if the link is missing.

    Remove all the script URLs from your theme directory.

    I appreciate your input. I have decided to remove the demo account. I will use some cPanel Flash tutorials as a demo.
