    Hi,

    I have an issue in which mail that is marked with {Spam?} or {Definitely Spam?} is still being delivered.

    Any ideas how to delete these and not deliver?

    Thanks for your help guys!

    Hi,

    You need to enable a option under cPanel "Auto-Delete Spam".
    You can find above option under the Spam Assassin.

    cPanel >> Mail >> Spam Assassin >> Auto-Delete Spam.

    Hi!

    Is there a setting in WHM that I can make server wide?

    You mean for auto-delete spam? Not precisely. However in the Exim Configuration Editor, you can block spam at SMTP time that exceeds certain spam scores (10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 17.5 and 20.0) which would have essentially the same effect but only for spam with a score greater than or equal to whichever threshold you select.

    Hello,

    Please try to follow this :

    spam assassin not working properly

    Login to your cpanel, click the MAIL Icon > SpamAssassin

    Disable SpamAssassin


    [ Go Back ]

    then


    [ Go Back ] again

    Email Filtering

    If you see any filters which instruct spam assassin to delete or manage emails tagged as spam in any way, delete the filter.

    [ Go Back ]

    SpamAssassin

    [ Enable SpamAssassin ]


    [ Go Back ]


    To simply have the server DELETE and NOT deliver emails that are tagged as spam by SpamAssassin, click here now.

    Enable that if you want spam assassin to delete emails tagged as spam, otherwise those emails will be downloaded to your email program and you can filter them in another way if you wish.

    You can

    Configure SpamAssassin

    5

    Set the number of hits required before a mail is considered spam. "n.nn" can be an integer or a real number. 5.0 is the default setting, and is quite aggressive; it would be suitable for a single-user setup, but if you're an ISP installing SpamAssassin, you should probably set the default to be more conservative, like 8.0 or 10.0



    Scroll down the page

    whitelist_from

    is where you can add people you know send to you and you want to be 100% certain spam assassin does not tag them as spammers.

    You can put 5 email addresses in the boxes and save

    [ Go Back ]

    five more boxes will appear for you to add another five people into your whitelist.



    Spam Box is currently: Disabled

    Its a good idea ***not*** to use Spam Box

    And how to enable SA and reject SPAM at SMTP even on mails being relayed by accounts on server? Current implementation just scans and act on mails coming in from remote hosts. A Zombie machine of a user on server could cause havoc so at least there should be a provision on enabling SA for all incoming.outgoing mails. Yes webmail could be excluded. But definitely there's something needed for mails being relayed.
