    Hi, I noticed that you can block certain IP addresses that constantly send spam, under ConfigServer Security & Firewall - Deny IP (# Spam etc).

    My question is, how or where do I go to actually see which IPs are sending spam so that I can block them through here?

    Thank you

    Regards

    ...well I was finally able to figure this out, here's what I did in case it helps anyone else.

    1. I went to ConfigServer Security&Firewall under Plugins on WHM
    2. I clicked on Firewall Deny IPs
    3. I created a blocked IPs list like this;

    ##############################
    # My blocked IPs list
    10.10.10.10 #spam - Where it came from comment
    11.11.11.11 #spam - Where it came from comment
    ##############################
    4. I installed ConfigServer Mail Manage via ssh
    5. Use ConfigServer Mail Manage to see the spam emails that are coming, retrieve their IP address and place it on my Blocked IP list

    Hope this helps!
