    Hi All,

    We are using Cpanel and have exim installed under it. Our email accounts are getting compromised every now and then resulting thousand of spam emais and IPs blacklist.

    Is there any parameter I can configure in Exim so that only specific users with specific IPs can connect to exim through thier Outlook or thunderbird and can send emails.

    Regards
    Waqas

    Hello :)

    Only services linked to TCP Wrappers are covered using the host access control option (/etc/hosts.allow). I suggest using a firewall management tool such as CSF to limit traffic to the specific ports that you want to restrict.

    Thank you.
