    I'm at my wits end... I have a client who likes to send out political emails to about 50 different recipients that he has CC'd (including me) on a daily basis. No one asked to be included in these emails / rants, but alas, he took it upon himself to include me in his emails.

    I tried to figure out a way to setup a Spam Assassin filter in cPanel to block incoming email with X number of recipients, but I can't figure out a way to do it.

    Is there any easy way to do this via cPanel / WHM? I don't want to tell him to remove me from the list, because to be honest, he's a big client of mine. Rather I would just block all incoming emails with X number of recipients being CC'd, that way I just don't get them in my inbox at all, but can still get emails from him directly.

    Any input is appreciated. I just can't stand listening to this guy or politics in general.

    Are there people on the list whom you have no dealings with and are unlikely to have any dealings with in the future.
    If so, could you create an email filter rule which goes along the lines

    From equals [email protected]
    and
    any recipient equals [email protected] (someone you have no dealings with)
    and
    any recipient equals [email protected] (someone esle you have no delaings with)
    Discard the message

    You should still recieve emails for said person, so long as the cc doesn't contain a few of the others.

    Worked like a charm, thanks so much!

    Now I don't have to listen to this guy rant and rave all day long about politics... I was seriously starting to lose my mind. If he was anyone else I would have simply told him to remove me from his chain emails, but since he's a big client, I'd rather stay on his good side.
