For a few days now i have had lots of hits on my mail/pop3 signin page trying to get in unauthorized. Is there a way to simply disable the login page, i dont use it, i always just use the cpanel or whm login to do what i need. So i dont need any access via the mail login page, i can just enter it via cpanel.

So how do i disable that login page all together. The url is

https://hostname.example.com:2096

I cant just block port 2096 because i wont be able to access it myself. I am the only user on the server.

Well i could not find a way via WHM however there is a way via CSF... you just make a rule and put it in the csf allow file

tcp|in|d=2096|s=xx.xx.xx.xx

replace the x's with your local conputer ip and everyone else that tries to access that port will be denied. Remember if your ip changes you will need to change it in the file as well.

The sad part is that i have not found a way to test this unless i change my ip. Most of the test sites dont accept host name formats.
