    I'm looking to way how to enable SMTP auth for each customer email box.

    As it is now customer can disable SMTP in his email software and send email from virtually ANY email address.

    Is there any way to make SMTP auth always enabled for each user?

    I saw "Verify the existance of email senders" option in WHM \ Exim Configuration Editor section and have it enabled but have the same result.

    Please advice...

    Hi,

    You must have this line in the /etc/exim.conf

    hostlist auth_relay_hosts = *

    Means SMTP auth is on.

    Thanks.

    Be carefull!

    This is not that I asked for.

    What you suggest is to ask outstanding sender to auth before recieve email on your box from them.

    After you set this then nobody can send email to you at all :)

    btw: I recieve answer from CPanel "This is normal, this can be done to any email server. ".

    What's going on here at all - if I have 2 customers then first can send email like from 2-nd and there is no way to determine which really sent it!

    This is incorrect I think.
    Server should check email and pass each time when triyng to send email.
