    Hi,

    My server sent some email from a infected wordpress website, the sender was a non existing domain on the machine. How can I configure exim or cpanel to stop sending those kind of emails.

    Thanks for the help

    Hello :)

    The following document is a good place to start:

    How To Prevent Email Abuse

    Also, for PHP scripts, you could add "mail" to the disable_functions line in your PHP configuration file if you want to force PHP scripts to use SMTP authentication for sending out email.

    Thank you.
