 Maximum Percentage of Failed or Deferred Messages a Domain May Send Per Hour

The maximum percentage of failed or deferred messages that a domain on the account can send before your server temporarily blocks outgoing mail from that domain.

  • The system examines outgoing and local mail over the previous hour to determine whether the domain exceeds the limit. 
  • When a domain exceeds the limit, it cannot send mail until the domain no longer exceeds the limit. 
  • The default value is unlimited.

You can make changes to the following options, which are listed under Settings:

OptionDescription

You may not use the WHM interface to add or remove installed extensions from an existing package. If you wish to use a different set of extensions, you may either Add a Package or use API calls to Modify Package Extension Data.

If any package extensions are installed on your server or are included in the package, the Package Extensions section will appear at the bottom of the interface.

Some extensions may include variables that you can edit. Any editable options or settings will appear below the extension name.

Note:

  • Only package extensions that you chose to include in this package will appear in this section.
  • To find out more about extension options and how to change them, consult the extension's documentation.
  • For more information, read our Package Extensions documentation.

If you do not wish to install the missing extensions, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the Remove missing extensions from package checkbox.
  2. Click Save Changes to remove the extensions from the package.
