How to change the hourly email limitations

Set the default hourly limit for individual accounts

WHM allows you to specify the maximum number of emails that each domain on your server can send per hour. This allows you to limit spam and better regulate bandwidth that the domains on your server use.

Step 1 – Login to Your  WHM Control Panel

Once on the main page, look to the left hand sidebar and find the Account Once on the main page, look to the left hand sidebar and find the Account Functions category and click on the Modify An Account option.

This brings you to a list of accounts on the server. Select the account you want to work with and click the Modify button at the bottom of the screen.

Step – Set the Maximum Hourly Email by Domain Relayed

You are now taken to a list of options for the selected account. Scroll down until you see the option named Maximum Hourly Email by Domain Relayed.

By default, the Unlimited radio button should be selected. Select the radio button next to the second field and enter the maximum number of emails you wish to allow the domain to send. In our example, we went with the standard 150 emails.

Click the Save button at the bottom to confirm and activate the new setting. The cpanel account is now limited to the setting you assigned.
