    Is there a way to configure a limit for maximum checks per hour per IP? Example users can check email via IMAP 45 times in 1 hour (60 minutes).

    Hello,

    There's no option that allows you to define such a limit on an hourly basis. You can see a list of available mail server options at:

    "WHM >> Home » Service Configuration » Mailserver Configuration"

    The only hourly rate limit options available are for sending email, and those are documented at:

    How to Set Email Send Limits - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    I encourage you to open a feature request if you'd like to see an option to limit hourly authentication attempts to IMAP or POP3.

    Thank you.
