    Greetings -

    Since my site host disabled BoxTrapper, I encounter a LOT more spam during the day.

    I'd like to create one or more rules to delete (or at least redirect) email
    if the Subject fields contain a known trigger word or phrase.

    For example, I'd like to redirect any email whose Subject contains 'jewelry'
    to (e.g.) spamCatcher AT myDomain DOT com.

    I can't find any .cf files on my site via cPanel's FileManager -- I seem only to have access
    to the /.spamassassin/user_prefs file.

    If anyone could
    i) advise whether I can in fact perform the redirection described with SpamAssassin
    (and, if so,)
    ii) provide a straightforward, complete example (as opposed to just a snippet)

    I'd really appreciate it.

    [Yes, I have reviewed the relevant SpamAssassin pages (and others),
    but what I've seen seems geared to Admins with more complete 'nix access -- I'm limited
    to what I can access via (my admittedly limited knowledge of) cPanel.]

    Thanks kindly,

    - Richard

    Do you have access to cPanel > Account Level Filtering area? If so, you should simply be able to use filtering there to setup such filters.
