    From WHM News --
    ============ BEGIN
    &Outgoing SMTP Limits You can now prevent the user 'nobody' from sending mail outside of the server. You can also limit the amount of emails each domain can send per hour. (6.0.0 build 42 or later only) &
    ============= END

    Won't that keep sendmail from working via cgi forms and php forms?

    Yep, quite a useless option. Again they did not ask us what was needed but simply assumed. 99% of our users install their own mailer software.

    Not necessarily, I just tried that option with two of our Bulk Mailer programs and it works fine.

    Most of our mailer programs have an e-mail address in them to send from.

    What's really a shame, is here is we are paying &X& dollars a month for a Control Panel and yet, when new features are added we have to use trial & error and to figure them out.

    I can agree with that, I would have thought that some advance warning of the change to 6.0 would also have been noted.

    The whm news is minimal at best as you still need to hunt for the things that are there. Also since themes are not updated exactly when these are released you do not see them unless you change to the default theme.

    I'm still trying to figure out the &cluster& thing, like exactly what it can and cannot do for us.

    To my knowledge, the only advantage to &clusters or clustering& is for statistical analysis. How a &cluster core& will help anyone will hopefully be provided in detail by DarkOrb.

    With regard to this thread itself, I'm glad to see we are able to put restraints on eMail sent by Nobody. I know that I (through Server notices) am not the only one be to using it -- but could not figure out exactly who else was.

    &its a manage everything from one interface deal&

    Manage what everything? - Does anyone know what this means - is it WHM and CPanel in one?

    I interprete that at meaning managing multiple servers from one WHM. But then again just guessing since no documentation exists for this yet.

    Here &Guinea Pig& where are you?
