Hi, I recently moved a site to my server which receives a lot of spam - some 1,000-2,000 messages a day - to random addresses, the vast majority of which don't exist. I have set up a few forwarders for genuine addresses, and told any other mail to go to :blackhole: which, in principle, is all good and well, except at times, load skyrockets due to many, many exim processes - often to over 200 immediate load - and brings the servers to its knees (like just this very minute, for instance). This is obviously not particularly useful. Someone suggested to me cutting off the spammers as soon as exim realises that it's talking to a spammer, rather than accepting and delivering the mail (as that makes the spammer think he has a genuine address). Could someone tell me how to do that with CPanel/WHM, and what changes need to be made to configuration files? Many thanks, this problem is causing much irritation to my clients as you can imagine.
