    Currently SpamAssassin is disabled by default for all accounts and must be manually enabled.

    Is there any way to ENABLE SpamAssassin by default?

    You can force all users to use SpamAssassin by going to WHM -> Service Configuration -> Exim Configuration Editor and checking "Turn on SpamAssassin for all accounts (Global ON)."

    Hmm, did I misunderstand what "turn on SpamAssassin for all accounts (Global ON)" meant?

    I thought that if you enabled that, it would _bypass_ any domain-specific or account-specific SpamAssassin.

    Based upon what you are saying, it sounds like checkmarking that option in WHM will just cause all new accounts to be set up with SpamAssassin (but would then allow individual customers to turn off SpamAssassin if they wished).

    Can you verify this for me? Does 'Global' mean that individual spamassassin configs are no longer used and instead one global SA config is used for all? Or does 'Global' just mean that it will enable SpamAssassin on each existing/new account but still leave the option for individual accounts to turn it off after the fact?

    Nope, when I said "force" I meant it. Users will be unable to enable/disable SpamAssassin as they desire.
