How will a specific email account be disabled temporarily through cPanel?
For the time being there’s no direct option in cPanel for this.This feature may be available at a later stage. However, we’ll do it by modifying a number of entries via SSH.
Comment out the entries associated with the actual email account within the following locations:
[box style=’doc’] /home/user/etc/domainname/passwd [/box]
[box style=’doc’] /home/user/etc/domainname/shadow [/box]
[box style=’doc’]/home/user/etc/domainname/quota [/box]
We just need to comment them and NOT delete them as we would possibly want them back later.
