    Hi!

    Today one of our resellers upload a bad programmed php script. That script sent about 70k emails in a few hours directly to queue.

    He was not spamming, the emails are just with the word test on body and widthot recipient.

    Now i have cleaned everything but i´m worried if this happend again with another user uploading a bad php file.

    There is any way to set a limit of how many emails a php file can send in short period of time ?

    No, you can't set a limit to the number of email messages a php or a cgi or any script can send. You can limit the number of email messages your clients or a client can send, but not a script.
