QMail: disabling an account
We have inherited a qmail system and not many people know qmail enough to know how to admin this. The ones that do know are in other departments and are busy. We have a user account that maybe used for spamming and keeps filling the queue with bounce messages. How do you disable an account in QMail? We have VQadmin setup but I don't see any such option when viewing the account. And as far as a configuration file not sure which one it could be. I'm new to qmail and to this forum. Thanks for any guidance.

I thought the account was not disabled due to the fact that it was being used to spam email outbound but I guess it can still be used in spite of. For anyone that may need to know this in the future here's how to disable an account:
If you have VqAdmin running, you login with administrative privileges, under email accounts click on "View Email Account", type the email account in the "Email Address" field and click on the "View Email Account" button. Down towards the middle you can check all the disable options you like to disable as many features you need to (except maybe Bounce email and Domain Administrator). Finally, "Modify Email Account" button below.
