Just wondering how can I stop a user from deleting emails on a mailbox that is being hosted on cPanel?

I have already created another mailbox that will auto-forward incoming emails - but I would like to keep a copy of the sent emails as well

Any ideas? :)

  • What e-mail server are you using??

  • I'll assume the user is aware that you're keeping copies of incoming and outgoing emails... You can set global email filters in cPanel instead of forwarding, however that only applies to incoming emails. For outgoing emails, you'll need to add an Exim system filter. Note they can still use another email client and SMTP to send email with the same email address however, which would bypass cPanel altogether.

To prevent a/any user to perform any actions on a mailbox, just change the user's rights on that mailbox.

  • Can you expand on this at all? How would you do this through cPanel or command line? Nov 25 '20 at 14:38
