    Hi all,
    in a previous post
    I asked help for disabling PHPMAIL .

    Now I need to disable SENDMAIL because somebody perhaps used his CMS to send spam.

    I tryed to override php configuration for disabling "sendmail function" by renaming the default value to "sendmail.disabled" but it doesn't work... any other idea?

    Can anybody help me?

    Most likely the cms uses exec, passthru or similar functions from php to execute the sendmail command. So ou will have to disable all exec like functions in php to prevent that the cms uses this way to send emails.

    I have an ISPConfig installed in Ubuntu 12.04 (I have followed this guide : )

    How should I proceed? I want to confirm that I have to disable SENDMAIL to customers only...

    Yes !
    It should work (adapted it!)
    disable_functions = pcntl_alarm,pcntl_fork,pcntl_waitpid,pcntl_wait,pcntl_wifexited,pcntl_wifstopped,pcntl_wifsignaled,pcntl_wexitstatus,pcntl_wtermsig,pcntl_wstopsig,pcntl_signal,pcntl_signal_dispatch,pcntl_get_last_error,pcntl_strerror,pcntl_sigprocmask,pcntl_sigwaitinfo,pcntl_sigtimedwait,pcntl_exec,pcntl_getpriority,pcntl_setpriority,symlink,shell_exec,exec,proc_close,proc_open,popen,system,dl,passthru,escapeshellarg,escapeshellcmd,allow_url_fopen,allow_url_include,posix_getpwuid,fsockopen,pfsockopen,socket_connect
    (/!\ it also disables PHP proxy usage (Like PHProxy...‎) and some upload scripts /!\)
