    May i know how does the outgoing mail hourly limit works?

    does cpanel have a cron job predefine hourly to reset the outgoing email counter of each domain? if it is, anyone know what is the time of reset?

    or cpanel will check the outgoing count for the last 60 min at that moment?

    when someone requesting a read receipt, does sending a read receipt included in this hourly limit?
