What's new for administrators

The new cPanel will notify you of potentially abusive email users.

Server administrators will now be notified when a domain exceeds a defined threshold of emails per 24-hour range.

In cPanel and WHM version 66, the ability to limit the number of emails a domain can send per day has been added. If the limit set by the administrator is exceeded, the system will trigger a notification within the Mail section of the WHM Fine Tuning Settings interface (Home > System Settings > Fine Adjustments). Note: The default value is "unlimited emails".

  • In order to count the outgoing emails of each account, this function uses the TailWatch script, a module that monitors for 24-hour frames, creating log files every 60 minutes.
  • When a new time starts, the system deletes the file recorded for the previous time.
  • The system monitors outgoing mail from subdomains and domains independently.

WHM frameless

The WHM interface has historically mutated from two framesets and three frames in cPanel & WHM version 62, to no frame or frameset in cPanel/WHM version 66.

Plugin developers must now explicitly include the WHM header and footer template files in custom interface files.

WHM interfaces that are opened in frames and iframes now hide the WHM left navigation menu by default.
