    Hi Guys

    We're getting drilled with malicious spam scripts at the moment.

    Is there a way i can enable SMTP restrictions (like setting max emails per hour to 20) and still have a mailing plugin like acymailing for example, be able to send to an entire newsletter database still if we're using mandrill as our external SMTP host?

    or do SMTP restrictions not apply when something like ACY is using an external SMTP host?

    Hello :)

    To clarify, are you experiencing issues with SPAM sending out from your server? If so, the following document is helpful:

    How to Prevent Email Abuse - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    The limits should still apply if the email is sent out through Exim.

    Thank you.
