    Hello ,


    Check your WHM tweak settings and make sure the we have prevented the nobody user to send the mails from your server.

    No it wasn't thanks I've turned it on last night but the issue has not been solved by this so far.
    I know you can black whole mail but that does not solve the fact someone is trying to use the server to send spam messages.

    Anything else I may have missed?

    For me, to block sendmail is way too complicated! :(

    Ain't there an easier way?
