    I have been plagued by a hacker / spammer sending emails from one of my domains on my server using email addresses that do not exist.

    i have tried to block this spammer, changing all passwords, updating everything nothing stops them.

    so there is only one email account i need working admin@mydomainname.com and the rest i want to have all mail automatically deleted, except for admin@mydomainname.com

    is there a command i can use to immediately delete all mail being sent except for admin@mydomainname.com

    i think that should take care of the problem

    how do i do this.

    thanks
    Alex

    I don't know of a command to do what you seek. But you might find the tools here of use:
    WHM »Email »Mail Queue Manager

    You can search for, select and remove any sort of email that comes up there.

    are you kidding me, the hacker is sending mail through domains which are being spawned from some other server, i have to delete literally 10,000 emails a day and there is now way i have found to stop the hacker from getting in.

    checking through the mail que is literally a job that would require thousands of hours per day.

    Can you escalate this to someone that knows something about cpanel / linux and stopping spammers???

    your answer is not helpful at all and i feel you don't know what your talking about

    Sure there is, suspend the account.

    Please feel free to open a ticket directly to cPanel Technical Support. From in your WHM, top right corner, is a life preserver icon with a menu and link to Contact cPanel.

    Good luck with this.
