    I have tried to look on your forum for this with no luck. I know that there is a way to disable receiving emails with ISPConfig but would it be possible to disable sending? I want some accounts to be able to only receive emails.

    Thank you for your help

    One way of doing this is by adding the following to /etc/postfix/header_checks

    /^From: .*@XYZ\.TLD>/ DISCARD
    This will stop any email from domain xyz.tld to be send.
    Make sure that you restart postfix after adding this.

    the code doesnt seems to do anything.

    I added the line to the header_checks file and restarted postfix but I can still send email locally and externally. Any other way to do this?

    Make sure that "/etc/postfix/header_checks" is included in your "/etc/postfix/main.cf" like this.

    header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
