    I have a usr that wants to keep their hosting account but lost his email privileges.

    Is there something I can put in "modify a account" to not allow him any emails?

    I currently tried '-1' but his email seems to still work.

    Maybe '0' or a 'word' will not allow any emails on the account?

    I know they can still send email through script no matter how many emails they have.

    Thanks, Charles

    Would deleting or changing the MX record for the account block it? Haven't tried but it might work.

    Funny I tried that, but he hasn't said his email doesn't work yet. So I think it still works somehow.

    Changing the MX will just prevent him from getting emails but he can send emails.

    Remove the MX record from his DNS zone file, change your serial, save, close & reload named. Pretty simple.
