    As per the attached screenshot, these emails are LFD alerts, you can stop them through WHM or command line as mentioned in the steps below.

    Through WHM:

    1. Login to your WHM and navigate to the “Plugins >> ConfigServer Security & Firewall” option

    2. Click "Firewall Configuration", it will open CSF configuration.

    3. Search for "LF_EMAIL_ALERT" and change it to Off then click "Change"

    We need to restart the CSF and LFD services for this configuration change to take effect, so click on "Firewall Restart" and "lfd Restart" buttons. That's it!

    Through Command Line:

    1. Login to your server through SSH.

    2. Open the CSF configuration file "/etc/csf/csf.conf" and locate the entry “LF_EMAIL_ALERT” and change its value from 1 to 0:

    #vi /etc/csf/csf.conf

    LF_EMAIL_ALERT = "0"

    3. Finally restart both CSF and LFD services to enable the changes.

    #service csf restart
    #service lfd restart
