I have a server running EXIM and I was wondering if there was a way to block e-mail from going out should a member load over 1000 e-mails in to the queue and then automatically delete them.

I am no Exim expert but one idea is to use Exim's rate limiting features and a custom ACL that runs a custom script to purge all email from the offending user. –  jeffatrackaid May 31 '13 at 16:51
Yea, true. Just was wondering if there would be a way to just prevent the small trickle of abuse if so many got loaded into que –  Tiffany Walker May 31 '13 at 18:02
