    I have 32 accounts in WHM. I am working on setting up Account Level Filters to block common spam email. It works great on one account. Is there a way to copy them from one domain's cpanel account to another domain's cpanel via FTP so I don't have to type them out 32 times?

    WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.6-S27698
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.7 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    My reseller account is with Hostgator.

    Thank You!

    You may want to consider writing the filter on this file /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter (maybe different if you changed the default). It would take effect to all accounts immediately.

    I do not have that file in my main resellers domain /etc directory.
    I am on virtual/shared hosting, maybe I don't have access.

    I found an example filter online and read it.
    I think this file exists somewhere in my account because the exact "fail text" messages show up when I try to send an invalid attachment to myself on my resellers account. Maybe if I was on a dedicated server I would have access because on a virtual server I share a mail server with others.

    Here is the header of the email I sent and received with the invalid test attachment:
    =====================================

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its

    If you meant to send this file then please
    package it up as a zip file and resend it.
