    After dealing with all the problems associated with e-mail, we've decided not to offer e-mail hosting any more. We'd like to run cPanel without e-mail hosting, but we aren't sure about some of the details.

    What do we need to do in order to disable those services? We still need the server to be able to send us alert e-mails and such. We just don't want users to have any e-mail capabilities. I assume that one method is just to limit packages to zero e-mail accounts, and to hide the e-mail functionalities.

    However, there are other little details. For example, in the "Update Contact Information" section, there is a checkbox to notify the user if any of their e-mail accounts go over quota. Of course, we'd like to eliminate that kind of verbiage because it will not apply.

    Any ideas on how to best implement cPanel without e-mail? BTW, this will start on a new server, so we're not worried about migrating or saving clients' existing e-mail.

    TIA,

    You can disable the exim service permanently by stopping the service after un checking the exim from service manager in WHM.You can also remove the email account icon from cpanel using the package manager.

    Thank you.

    Will this cause any administrative issues, for example preventing the server from e-mailing any needed alerts (rootkithunter summaries, syslogs, etc.)?
