    Hi,

    When customer enable filtering, it writes the condition at /etc/vfilter/domain.com and /home/userid/.filter

    When mail comes in, what are the files check, is it check /etc/vfilter/domain.com or
    /home/user/filter filter?. If customer modify /etc/filter/domain.com, does he need to
    modify /home/userid/.filter file?


    any help ?

    When a new message comes in, exim checks the file at /etc/vfilters/domain.com. I am really not sure what purpose the /home/user/.filter has. I may be wrong, but I think the .filter file is read by cPanel, when you log into your control panel and view the filters, but the vfilters file is viewed by exim. I'm not really sure why cPanel cannot read the vfilters file and display information based on that.
