Tweak Settings disabling BoxTrapper by default
As a Server Administrator, I want to have the Tweak Settings disabling BoxTrapper by default, so that boxtrapper challenge mail is not spamming customers.
BoxTrapper turns any cPanel machine into a spam server. The reason is simple. Spammers always spoof the FROM email address. To avoid being blocked by spamfilters (using sender verification callouts) they generally try to ensure that the fake FROM address used actually does exist somewhere. BoxTrapper sends a challenge/response email to every spoofed (existing) FROM address. Hence for every spam message cPanel receives it sends a spam out itself to the unknowing user who's email address happens to be abused at random by the spammer.
Many spamfilters will actually block servers that are running such a challenge/response system exactly for that reason.
