    If I understand you correctly, you can set global mail send imiting by editing file /etc/virtual/limit or to change daily mail sending limit only for specific user you can put the desired value in the file /etc/virtual/limit_username. If those files doesn't exists you have to create it. You can read more here:https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=81

    Use something like DADAMail, it lets you configure how many emails to send per hour/day.

    You can also set limit via gui on Administrator Settings or go to this link: http://server_IP:2222/CMD_ADMIN_SETTINGS

    Saying about the DA daily limit, not sure if it continues to send if you have more to send the next day.

    eg. if you limit to 1k a day, but you have 2k to send, not sure if it'll continue to send the remaining 1k the next day...... If it does, it would defeat the purpose of trapping spam.

    Hello,

    If emails were not sent immediately by Exim and were put into a mail queue it might be caused by one or several of the following reasons:

    - server load was too high
    - emails were bounced back
    - your server IP was blacklisted and/or a connection to a remote 25 port was rejected.

    Whatever the reason is you should read Exim logs to understand what went wrong.
    Outgoing emails would be rejected immediately by local Exim (without putting them into mail queue) if you hit a threshold on daily sends.

    I think I am having one of these problems because I received emails bounced back like this

    Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    retry timeout exceeded

    It is by email error or a bounced back by my email server?

    The recipient server as it seems rejected a connection from your server. It should be investigated through logs, and with telnet on port 25.

    On my end the server under question does not accept connections to 25 port, they seem to block it.
