How To Disable All Email Services On Cpanel Based System

May 22, 2008

For one of my server based on cpanel i want to disable all email services/ send/receive etc. How do i go about it ?

Would Main >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager be the best place and disable the following services :


POP before SMTP daemon


SMTP Server


IMAP Server


POP3 Server


SpamAssasin Server (if you choose to disable this, you should disable SpamAssasin in tweak settings as well)

Would that be enough to stop any emails from going out of server? Say via any contact form or any other way?

Please advice or i need to do it mannually via ssh and disable them.

I have SIM installed, so would i need to configure or remove something out of it too?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: CentOS 6.6 Based System - Activate Mod Rewrite With Proftpd

Nov 13, 2014

My company and I are currently discovering Plesk on a CentOS 6.6 based system. We are migrating from an old system on which FTP usernames could hold uppercase letters, which apparently is not the case in Plesk 11 (or is it because of CentOS?).

Anyway, as we can't change these FTP account names, I was thinking about creating a rule with mod_rewrite in the proftpd.conf file.

So the question is: how can I reinstall/reconfigure proftpd with this module activated? I don't even know where to find the corresponding package (which repo, correct version, etc...)

Email Services

Nov 4, 2008

This kinda follows on from a prev thread about advice on finding another isp.

My (soon to be ex) isp had email outage for over 3 days, I lost emails which means losing business and I don't want to be in this situation ever again.

I know that stuff happens and machines do go down etc. but I need to know how if possible a decent isp would be able to work around this, should they have a standby server, could they intercept/redirect incoming emails even though the account was down.

I'm not very technical but these are the questions I need to ask any prospective isp's

Blacklisted Because Of Legitimate Email Sent Via Web-based Forms

Jan 30, 2008


Client has a nice website with a "contact us" online form. The form itself is secure (no injection attacks etc) and simply collects some data from the site-user, and emails that data to the site owners email address.

This email is sent using php "FROM" the siteusers email address (eg: etc), so that when it arrives with the site owner, they can simply hit reply etc.

However - the site owners email is protected by "FrontBridge" (aka Microsoft), and suddenly they stop receiving such form-mail.

Response from FrontBridge is
"If the IP that is sending these emails does not have the domain names that it is sending on behalf of registered to it, it can not send to our domain as it will be picked up and flagged as spam. " They then indicate that too much of this so called "spam" will result in a blacklisting - which is what seems to have now happenned.

Pretty unfair I'd have thought, and probably how MOST web based form2email scripts are setup.

Plesk Automation :: Disable Email On Domain Entirely?

Jul 25, 2014

How do we disable email on the domain entirely? The client is hosting email externally - the offered spam filtering is wholely inadequate and we're seeing a few of these happening - to the point I'm considering offering externally hosted email plans anyway - but back to the problem - I need to delete the mailboxes and then disable mail - and then remove the DNS records for webmail etc - but can't seem to find how to turn off locally hosted email for a domain.

High Usage Email System Query

Apr 15, 2009

One of the projects I will work on will require to process 50,000 emails a day. Most of these emails would include attachments and the challenge is to process them and put all the stuff into a database for the application to use.

My biggest concern is spam and we cannot afford to lose out on legitimate emails. One way of configuring the setup would entail checking emails for the specific types of attachments and piping it in.

However I was just wondering if someone here has dealt with this volume of emails and also what are the spam limiting options available (even commercial would do)

Pop Failed :: CPanel POP Services - All My Servers

May 1, 2008

pop failed @ Thu May 1 00:38:11 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.

Its been happening from around 00:00 GMT 30th April/1st May.

All my servers are spamming me with these, not just one. All are set to auto update on STABLE build.

Anyone else having these issues?

cPanel and their nasty bug releases I suppose. Even after paying them a premium price and recognizing them as a premium control panel provider!

HTTPS Not Working - Cpanel Based Site

Mar 28, 2007

Today, I've purchased a RapidSSL Certificate for my site with Cpanel and https:// access did not work.

What I did was :-

1) Generate a Private Key
2) Create a CSR Request Certificate
3) Submit that and installed the Certificate in WHM for the site.

The site is running on a dedicated IP and it works as http:// but not with the https:// .

I checked and Cpanel did include the SSL directive for the site in httpd.conf and have rebooted the server and restarted httpd but to no avail.

I also had OpenSSL installed and update WHM. The Apache 1.x was installed with OpenSSL Support too.

Is there a SSL Server or something which may not be active ?
