One of my users sends a bulletin once a week and that happens he receives this warning message
so I was wondering if the emails that he send are put in queue (and EXIM sends them later) or are rejected

Hey there! Yes, they would get queued and sent later. We have some more details on this here:


"After the system reaches a limit, it does not block additional messages at SMTP time. Instead, the system accepts and then handles additional messages per the value of the The percentage of email messages (above the account’s hourly maximum) to queue and retry for delivery. setting in WHM’s Tweak Settings interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings)."
