    Max hourly emails per domain under Tweak Settings is set to 100, but a WP hack was able to send over 1000 emails before I found it and killed it less than 2 hours later.

    How is the possible?

    I have double checked that both at the account level and package level this setting is still in place at the same 100 email per hour threshold.

    Hello :)

    Email sent through the PHP mail() function are not bound by the "Max hourly emails per domain" limit. You will need to force your script to use SMTP authentication when sending out emails to ensure it's included in the limit.

    Thank you.
