    Hi All,

    First and foremost I'm in the online gaming industry, hence using Spammassign and or similar antispam products tend to cause a lot of false positives. Albeit I can fine tune things but with 30+ sites, that soon becomes a major drain on my time. Besides, it's akin to bailing a flooding boat with a teaspoon.

    I have been using Boxtrapper but I'm now concerned about Backscatter.

    Is there anything within WHM/Cpanel I can impilment, to work with Boxtrapper, to check if the senders email is a bona fide email address?

    In which case if it returns a "no", the spam will be deleted and not even enter the Boxtrapper routine.

    Any suggestions etc. etc. are appreicated, thanks.


    Cheers

    Dave

    I disagree.

    You should be. Not sure I'd enable boxtrapper on an account that gets loads of email constantly.
    I'd suggest you enable it:
    SpamAssassin - cPanel Documentation

    Without knowing exactly what type of email you're getting, it sounds like you're getting email you shouldn't be getting to begin with.
    Default Address - cPanel Documentation
    Is DKIM set up on the account?
    Email Authentication - cPanel Documentation

    There are lots of tweaks worth visiting here as well:
    The Exim Basic Editor - cPanel Documentation

    Hopefully there's something helpful there for you. GL!
