How to use Spamassassin to filter your email. This tutorial will show you how to use Spamassassin to filter out spam from your email. Boxtrapper is also an alternative.
This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to cPanel, and are starting on the home screen.
Now let’s learn how to enable spam protection.
Click the ‘Apache Spamassassin’ icon.
You can use SpamAssassin in conjunction with BoxTrapper for maximum spam control, or you can use BoxTrapper on its own, or SpamAssassin on its own.
Click to Enable SpamAssassin.
Then click “Go Back”.
You’ll now want to configure SpamAssassin, so click the “Configure” button. A setting of 5 is the default. Incoming mail is rated as 1 being the least spam-like so the lower the number, the more aggressive the filtering will be.
From here you can setup your blacklist with email addresses you KNOW are spam…
… and can add email addresses to your whitelist… addresses you KNOW are NOT spam.
This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to enable spam protection in cPanel, using BoxTrapper and SpamAssassin.
