    Trophy Points:

    I have a cPanel enabled VPS (ServerName) and hosts multiple domains.
    cPanel 11.25.0-R43470 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9
    CENTOS 5.4 i686 virtuozzo on server

    1. outgoing SMTP authentication based on domain name:
    Outgoing mail requires authentication.
    when sends email, they are currently able to connect to any of the domain names hosted on my VPS. For ex: can use as SMTP server and mails still get accepted for delivery. They can also currently use ServerName as outgoing server and still send out emails.

    The problem I have is this: Quotas are enabled and SMTP traffic is also counted towards bandwidth usage.
    If users in use any other name(say to connect, then the outgoing SMTP traffic gets counted towards - though that should not be the case.

    How can I ensure that use only * as outgoing SMTP?

    2. Incoming SMTP traffic:
    Similarly, my server should accept incoming SMTP traffic only when the connections place according to the domain name for which email is sent to. For instance if there is an incoming SMTP mail for, then my server should accept requests only when connection to the server has been made as "" and not referred to by any other name.

    How can I do this?

    Thanks so much.
