Go on, have a guess
For those that are intersted, I'm working on a user cPanel front-end to MailScanner. Not sure how's it's going to pan out with themes as I'm very new to them, but I've got the front-end working (just got to get the back-end right). Do note that I'm trying to keep it idiot proof, not feature rich, for end users ;). Pretty picture attached.

Friendly comments welcome :)

Great effort and it will be most welcome.
I am an avid supporter of end user control over their own email. After all, some people like to receive their email, spam included. Who am I to decide what they can receive or not receive?
Thanks Chirpy and I hope those others who create spam/virus protection systems allow end users the choice to enable, disable or serverside automation control of their emails. ISP's (control freaks) seem to favour only the latter choice of the three.

Looks promising. Do you have an ETA? Will it work with any theme?

2 desirable additions would be whitelisting per domain/per user and options for including inline messages in outgoing emails.

It's about 95% complete (so no new features for the initial release).

You will need cPanel Pro installed as it uses the new API.

It should work with any theme that uses the new API correctly (i.e. currently X and X2, don't know about 3rd party themes).

I'm going to look at white/black listing by the users, but I'm still trying to keep it idiot proof ;)

Oh, and I still haven't decided on a distribution method as yet. That is, whether there will be a charge for it or not, or whether it might only be available as part of our MailScanner Package. There's a significant investment in developer time gone into it and will continue to as it develops.

This looks AMAZING. I purchased your install of MailScaner/ClamAV etc. and look forward to the work I know you'll do a great job at :).

Strcitly speaking - yes. For now. Commercial decision I'm afraid :eek:

Of course, you can always purchase the package and only go for the front-end part of the service installation ;)

Enhancement Request

Hi Jonathan;

An enhancement I'd like to see is the ability to change the "Forward to:" address. For example if I have 10 subdomains I want all of them to forward high scoring to one address.

Also to set what level is considered low/high, for example we may want anything under 6 as low and above to be high.

Thanks

end user spam control..

hi jonathan

regarding your mailscanner frondend, some of my clients want an additional option of allowing their users to mark mail as 'spam' (those that get through the filters), using their webmail interface. and if any mail that is not spam (false positive), but gets tagged should be marked as 'not spam' . this way the end user can also control the mails which he receives. any ideas on including something like this in your package.

Thanks
Sunil

Hi Sunil,

that could be quite tricky to do on a per user basis if you're using a server-wide bayesian database, especially since you need to have the full original raw email when using sa-learn (something you cannot get from Outlook, for example). However, I'll stick it on the wishlist :)

You can do this as a server administrator, though, using something like:
http://mailwatch.sourceforge.net/

It can be tricky to install, but can work well, though doesn't provide user access only server administrator.
