    Does anyone have any suggestions about how to setup an additional layer of spam protection and scan all incoming mail for spam before it hits the intended mailbox ?

    As I understand it, spam assasin will only check mail in a users account if they have setup a mailbox for it. Forwarders do not get checked.

    I'd like to implement a server wide spam solution and make clear to customers (in our terms of service) that they might lose legitimate mail due to spam policy - i.e get used to it or go elswhere.

    Any suggestions ?

    That's exactly what MailScanner can do.

    Trying to remember why we stopped using mailscanner.

    I'll do some research.

    Thanks.

    Is there a way to create a separate email scanner server?

    Kind of a firewall for blocking spam email.

    Yes. You would have to setup that server and point the MX records to it, and then (in exim parlance) setup a smart router to forward it on to the cPanel server. Locally delivered email would bypass this, though.
