Re: Disable a User's email account



I find it's nice to continue to receive email for someone, even while the account is disabled, to do this simply:

Lock Account
usermod -L $username

Unlock Account
usermod -U $username

man usemode for more info.

PS. this prevents all logins including ftp (it prefixes to password entry with !)

Dear All,

So, how to disbale a User's mail service ?
eg : Sendmail + Dovecot ( pop3 /imap ).


One way is to use the aliases file to direct the mail elsewhere or to /dev/null. Another is to use the virtuser table to map the users you want to permit to real addresses with a catchall rejection.

Maybe it would be easier to describe exactly what you want these users to be able to do first and build an environment that provides nothing else instead of starting with a general-purpose login and trying to stop everything you don't want them to do.

Hello,

Is there a sample ( steps by steps ) for reference ?

Edward.
