Preventing a User from Sending Messages

Preventing a User from Sending Messages


A Forum reader recently asked:

"It sounds contrary to the function of an e-mail server, but here is my problem. I need certain users to be able to access the Internet and receive e-mails like usual. However, these users should not be able to send any messages to anyone (local users, or the internet). I found TID's on how to block sending thru the GWIA, but not to local users."

And here's the response from Tommy Mikkelsen ...


This works for me ...

1. In the Client Options in ConsoleOne, set the views for that user to "HTML only."

2. Lock the setting.

3. Set the maximum send size to 1 KB.

That should do it.
