    Does anyone know how to prevent the user 'cpanel' from sending email/spam? Will taking the cpanel entry out of the mail group accomplish this?

    Any suggestions would be helpful

    is there any specific reason you want to do this? notifications for bandwidth and disk space come from the cpanel user, as does any mail from antirelayd authenticated users
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I have noticed alot of anonymous spam being sent from the 'cpanel' account. I was just curious if disabling this account would be helpful or not. I guess I will just enable the x-source headers and deal with in that manner.

    In WHM, Exim Configuration Editor, Switch to Advanced Mode:

    Insert this in the first/top window >> log_selector=+all

    Login in as root >> tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog
