    I am really tired to fight against spammers sending spam from my box :mad: ...

    It could be a nice feature if cpanel could be able to detect
    an abnormal usage of exim (for example after a custom number of messages on queue , for example 500, it should be able to detect this abnormal usage) .

    If an abnormal usage of exim is detected, cpanel should de-activate exim automatically and should send an advice to pager and email administrator contacts .

    Is it a good idea ? What do you think , is it realizable ?

    Well I have set this limit of course , however yesterday someone on my box was able to send over 3000 messages bypassing those restrictions slowing down the server , and I received no warning from whm .

    Luckly I was online so I stopped the spammer .
