Using a Full Feature iRedAdmin can do that easily.

With iRedAdmin (official web-based admin panel), you can set account status with one click (Checkbox: Enable this account):

Re: How disable a email account ?

Hi, Huangbin,

What does the disable mean? I guess the user won't be able to login, but is the email account still receiving emails if someone else tries to send email to it? Does the disable also cause the email to be removed from all mailing lists on the iRedmail system.

Thanks

Disabling user with attribute/value "accountStatus=disabled" means:

- User cannot login via POP3/IMAP/SMTP.
- Mail server won't accept emails which sent to this account.
- User won't be removed from mailing list.
