    In WHM by using the "Feature Manager" in the "Packages" option you should be able to create
    a package that only contains certain functions. Then assign that package to an account/domain.

    Go on, have a guess
    There are two people asking for different things here:

    1. If you want to not receive email for a domain, point their MX record somewhere else and remove their domain from:
    /etc/localdomains
    and put it into:
    /etc/remotedomains

    I don't believe that you can prevent someone POPing in, but since they won't have any email, that's a moot point.

    2. To prevent only one user from sending email out, but allowing others, is going to be harder and you are going to have to invest some effort in finding out how yourself.

    If they're not on a predictable IP address (and so you could firewall them), you'll have to look into modifying Exim. To do this, go to http://www.exim.org and teach yourself how it works and how to exclude certain domain user from sending out email. It might be as simple as removing the domain from /etc/localdomains - you're going to have to do some testing and reading.

    Not to cause trouble, but Ensim allows this very thing very easily.
