    I was wondering in the old days i had my ticket system uses pop3 account to download emails and spam was so low, but now after piping the emails via support@xxxxxxxx.net: "|/home/login/www/admin/pop3pipe.php"
    i'm getting tons of email messages per day.

    would that be a possibility for emails to avoid spam rules or what?

    Thank you.

    AFAIK, if you use a forwarder (which piping would) then the cPanel implementation of SpamAssassin is indeed bypassed. If you were to use MailScanner, then it would definitely would not be bypassed.

    Thank you :) amazing tutorial

    just wondering is there any built-in way with cpanel to use their spamassasin or any other software automatically instead of installing additional software?
