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 ?

Trying to remember why we stopped using mailscanner.

I'll do some research.

Thanks.

Go on, have a guess
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.
