    in exim_mainlog i see one user is sending like a few mails per minute, i believe following log line means mail was sent to gmail account from my server..

    But i counted these log lines and it is there around 350 times in one hour for each hour.. while i have limie 200 emails limit in WHM.

    So i want to ask if i understand that correctly that this user is somehow beyond the mail limit? Thank you

    Hello,

    May be you have setup different mail sending limit for this account and due to that it's sending more than 200 mails from your server. Check your mail limit of your account under /var/cpanel/users/$account file

    SOLVED

    i had "MAX_EMAIL_PER_HOUR=unlimited" in /var/cpanel/users/usernamehere file

    so i needed to go to WHM, cpanel list and selected to modiffy that account to switch to 200 mails limit from unlimited.
    This limit is also set in "Packages" which sets limits when new cpanel account is created.

    thank you
