    Usually I notice Squirrelmail and Horde mail sends out spam some way or other that we cannot stop unless we disable these features in tweak settings.

    Emails like this get sent:

    Received: from 0.0.0.0 ([0.0.0.0])
    (SquirrelMail authenticated user user@domain)
    by 0.0.0.0 with HTTP;
    Mon, 5 Jan 2015 08:43:47 +0200

    Any idea how to stop it?

    Better yet how do we disable both horder and squirrelmail from command line if we do not have access to whm? I'd prefer doing it from command line in linux.
    Thanks

    Hello :)

    The example header you provided indicates the user authenticated. You may need to change the password for those email accounts when this happens. You can disable Horde and SquirrelMail from the command line by editing the following values in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config:

    Code:
    skipsqmail=0
    skiphorde=0
    Edit the values from "0" to "1", save the file, and then restart cPanel. This will disable those webmail applications.

    Thank you.
