    There must be something in CPANEL/WHM which should limit the number of emails that get sent out per minute or day! Some spammer sent out thousands of emails from using sendmail and PHP on our server recently and caused a whole big mess...

    NICK, are you working on something like this????

    Or does anyone know where I can change this in the EXIM config files??? What command do I change or add??

    Seems to me that cpanel exim is prety good protected from spammers.
    Relaying trough cpanel is posible only with authorization.

    Maybe you should check did some of your users still have uncofngiured formmail.pl scripts wich spammer use for sending mails.
    Check apache logs in /usr/local/apache/domlogs for formmail.pl entry. Also check did you recently update your cpanel to newsest verison.

    Find your to 50 outgoing spammers by using

    WHM -& email -& View Mail Stats

    It doesn't matter which email account sent it, this statistics are on a Linux user basis

    This can't be done. It will break Mailman and anything else that uses email as a main purpose. Also cpanel isn't made to run your server. Unless you know what you're doing cpanel is just a tool to make it easier. If Nick was to put limits on mail it would just cause problems. Instead as the admin you should just terminate the account.

    I agree, you can't expect cpanel to run every function of your web server... There are programs you can run to analyze mail traffic and lock down accts that are spamming...

    Also, the server will email you when someone runs a new php/perl sendmail script on the server, and show you exactly where it is... at that point you could check the sendmail logs to see if the script was piping extreme amounts of data to the server.
