    Hello

    Having used cpanel for several years with over 22,000 accounts running on the system, a recurring weakness is the inability to easily track an email back to the script which was executed to create it.
    I have lost track of the hours I an dmy staff have spent (often during the night at weekends) tracking down exploited scripts and spammers.
    There really needs to be a central logging of script sendmail and mail() executions.
    I am not sure how that could be achieved but its a continuing weakness.

    I am not going to put in a formal feature request at this stage because I want to provoke a discussion about what should be getting logged in general as other people might have other ideas.

    Thats not a satisfactory solution because it stops legitimate sendmail functions.
    What we need is a greater level of logging on a continuous basis the same as we do with other mail processes.
