Description

This function sets Exim's queue to hold email that a user sends to an external address.

Note:

If mail for a cPanel user's account is suspended, the system will reject their email before the mail server puts it in the queue.

Important:

In cPanel & WHM version 76 and later, when you disable the MailSend role, the system disables this function. For more information, read our How to Use Server Profiles documentation.
