    If I create multiple filters in the cpanel mail area.. what order are they applied to the incoming emails?

    My idea is that I want to:

    First: Have any email tagged by spam assassin with a score of 10 or higher "discarded".

    Second: Have any email tagged by spam assassin with a score of 6 or higher sent to a "" mailbox for manual check/delete.

    So.. this would obviously require the first filter to work BEFORE the second filter...

    Any ideas? I've done some testing, but my results seem to be mixed. (ie: Sometimes one filter is before the other..)

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Holy cow, this is exactly what I want to do! I was trying to find a solution before starting a new post:

    In my case, my current SA threshold is 3.5 with a subject rewrite of "*SPAM* (_HITS_) - subject" (without quotes). It's very easy to filter all spams for an entire domain using a filter that finds either by SA header or "begins with *SPAM*" to a certain e-mail address for review.

    What I want to do, though, is automatically discard anything above 10.0 points, but continue filtering all others below ten points to a certain address for review. Adding a regex filter for "\([1-9][0-9]\.[0-9]\)" makes this possible...

    ...but the filters continue to process & the e-mail gets sent to null & the other e-mail address instead of just stopping at the discard!

    There's got to be a way to do this!?
