    Hey all,

    I am looking for the option so that my users need to enable password verification for outgoing email. Many have said that anyone can just log onto their account and send mail as if it was from them. So can someone please direct me to where the option is to force people to have to use their password on outgoing emails.

    Much appreciated,

    Joel Theodore

    am I understanding you correctly, that if you gave me any url to any site on your server that I can just go in to email account on the server? confused here.... when I make email accounts on any account via cpanel you make the password there

    Sorry let me clarify this...

    When you are in Outlook or a similar email client, you insert your "Outgoing Mail Server" Such as mail.yourdomain.com; I want my users to have to Authenticate Outgoing Email, instead of anybody being able to just send outgoing email via our mail server etc.

    ah ok..... I never use those much but the time that I have, you still have to have a good username and password, so your saying that I can take any mail.domain.com with one of my email accounts and use that mail.domain.com

    Correct, you can't receive any of their incoming emails, however you can use the server to send all your outgoing emails etc.

    Standard in cpanel 8.x is that users need to use authentication to send out emails. But standard is also to use smtp-after-pop so if you first check your email with pop or imap and then send it seems that you do not need to authenticate but already did so through your pop or imap session. The ip is only authenticated for 15 minutes.
    If you can indeed send out a message from a local address to a non-local address without any form of authentication then something is really wrong!
    And if you can send from a non-local address to a non-local address through your server then not only is something wrong but you are also an open relay which will get you blacklisted pretty quickly.

    You can look on http://exim.org on how to turn on smtp auth. However, check with your NOC first, some NOCs will not support this change.
