    Hi,

    I had some foo send 1,000,000 emails, and got my server shut down.

    Is there a way to block a user from sending email if they have sent more than a certain amount in a day?

    Check this option in WHM -> tweak settings.

    The maximum each domain can send out per hour (0 is unlimited):

    We are using a mail monitor script that restricts anyone from sending out more then 50 emails at once. This comes about after we found one user sending out almost 16,000 emails in 5hours. If sombody attempts to send out more then 50 emails at once the 51st and all msgs after that is blocked and stopped. Then i get notified of the attempt. This program saved us the other day when one of our resellers mailer.cgi went crazy and attempted to send out a msg to every user in his database. He couldnt stop the mailer but the mail monitor program stopped it after 50 even though the user saw the 1,000th msg being sent. I love this program.
