    Hello,

    I found a situation on our environment that is really unpleasant for us and our customers.

    Imagine this hypothetical situation:

    my hosting company domain is: myhostingcompany.com a
    and the customer domain is: customerdomain.com

    The customer create his e-mail account on outlook that is customer@customerdomain.com. He did a good authentication to send e-mails. From now his ip is allowed to send e-mail from our server for 30 minutes.

    Now this customer creates an account on outlook express without password, the account name he create is

    Iwill_play_with_my_host@myhostingcompany.com

    And then... the e-mail goes to any place he want.

    -------------------------------------------------
    I know this a hypothetical situation, but let´s face. Things like that can happen.

    What I want to know is, if Iwill_play_with_my_host@myhostingcompany.com doesn´t exist, is there anyway to prevent other users already autenticated send e-mails from other domains?

    I know disabling tailwatchd will force authentication all the time but, other than that, is there any other solution?

    I talked with cpanel's support about that and it was recommend me to use the "/etc/mailhelo" option, but I didn´t understand very well how it´s work

    Can anyone help?
    thank you
