    Well an easy way to limit the number of outgoing emails can be done at: Account Functions >> Modify Account

    At the bottom of the list, it will have limit outgoing emails per hour. Default is set at 1000 but can be changed.

    I believe the original thread poster likely isn't using cPanel at all. cPanel would have automatically installed exim without requiring a manual configuration of exim.

    To answer the question, you'd have better luck asking on exim.org site for their mailing lists. There's a prior discussion there on rate limiting emails:

    http://www.exim.org/lurker/message/20090115.142654.8f43a0d2.en.html

    We wouldn't be able to configure or assist in this for you, since it is outside how cPanel itself is configured and we already have rate limiting options available in WHM to perform the task(s).
