    I have been receiving tons of local relay mail alerts tonight for an account that should not have mail sending privileges at all...

    I am worried that some spamming is occurring so I need to know how to block the account from sending mail without blocking the entire account until I can have the developers investigate tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance.

    To disable the account from sending/receiving emails you can do the following through SSH:

    chmod 000 /home/user/mail
    chattr +ai /home/user/mail
