In my Mail Queue Manager on my WHM Cpanel I see the [system] as one of the email sender. Not a huge deal to me at first but now it's sending tons of mail everyday. Is there a way to stop this?
WHM 11.32.2 (build 25) CENTOS 5.8 i686 virtuozzo
Yes, you change the
We combine system name and function so we can narrow down why we're getting an automated email just from the sender name or address.
You can certainly limit the no of outgoing email sent from accounts in WHM/cpanel
Goto Tweak Settings --> Mail --> Max hourly emails per domain
Set an appropriate value here, If you feel that you don't send too many email from your server limit the no to say 100 or something.
Note: This setting applies to every account on cpanel/WHM server.
Have you set up the root and cPanel forwarders?
You can do that through - WHM >> Main >> Server Contacts >> Change System Mail Preferences
root@cpanel [~]$ touch .forward
I would also suggest figuring out what those emails are coming from and fix/stop that.
