    Hello all!

    I enabled in Tweak Security -> SMTP Tweak a few weeks ago.
    I now need to deactivate it again because of the use of firewall CSF, which is complaining about the active tweak.

    Problem: the option SMTP Tweak is no longer visible in Tweak Security.

    Anyone a suggestion on how to resolve this? :confused:

    Thanks in advance!!

    *Solved*

    Hi,

    I already solved the problem myself.
    cPanel checks if in /var/cpanel the empty file smtpgidonlytweak is present.
    To deactivate the SMTP Tweak, just remove this file and restart cPanel.

    Although this solution, I still don't see the SMTP Tweak in WHM Tweak Security, so if someone knows how to solve this little problem....;)

    Update: the SMTP Tweak link came back after a cPanel update!

    Go on, have a guess
    I noticed it disappearing too - must of been a bug ;) As you found out /var/cpanel/smtpgidonlytweak is the file csf checks for and that which controls the function within cPanel and deleting it effectively disables it.

    :) Thanks Chirpy for this info, which means I am not alone!
    It would indeed be nicer that the control should be managed in a conf/ini file or something like that.

    Thanks also for your nice firewall!
    I was using APF but had troubles with it in an VPS in OpenVZ.
    Your firewall is the one I was looking for, especially easy pre-configured for cPanel.

    I do have an additional question for CSF on the hardware node.
    May I ask it you personal? Because it's not really a cPanel topic.
