Preventing Your Customers From Sending Mass E-mail (Linux Hosting)

To prevent your users from sending mass e-mail, do the following:

  1. Create a file named maxrcpt in the directory $QMAIL_ROOT_D/qmail/control/

    where $QMAIL_ROOT_D is the location defined in the file /etc/psa/psa.conf file.

  2. Type the number of allowed recipients in this file and save it.

Note that this number also affect sending of messages to mailing list or mail group subscribers. That is, if you set the value to 100, then only 100 subscribers will receive the message sent to a mailing list or a mail group.

When you no longer need to restrict the number of recipients, delete the maxrcpt file.
