    Some how users are logging in to send email using only the cpanel log in. This is disabled in the tweak settings. Any idea how they're still doing this and disable it?

    Are you referring to the Allow mail account authentication using the password of the domain owner's account Tweak Setting or some other Tweak Setting?

    Yes I was referring to that tweak, if that's not what it's for then can you let me know how to disable that. Spammers are signing up for cheap accounts just so that they can use the cpanel login to relay emails.

    That tweak setting will prevent the logging into of bob@example.com with the cPanel user's password (assuming that user owns example.com). It will not prevent the user from logging into the "default" account.

    Is there no way to disable the default account then? All my users create email accounts to use, no one uses any of the defaults except the spammers.
