    If I have a remote spamassassin system that is scoring/scanning email before it hits my system, can I have SA ignore them so they arent not checked again, but are still routed by the scoring rules that the user has in place? Hope that question makes sense. LOL.

    Those filters arent processed before SA happens on the cpanel server though. Thats what i need to happen and i need this to happen server wide when it comes from my appliances ip address.

    Could you clarify if SpamAssassin is running on the remote mail server, in addition to the local cPanel server? Have you considered disabling SpamAssassin on the cPanel server if it's already utilized on the remote mail server?

    Thank you.

    SA is running on the remote system, thus why i still want the local one to use its scoring to filter, etc. I need to keep the local SA still running so i can use some of its features for outgoing processing and to sync some of its backend settings like whitelists, etc.

    Could you let us know the specific global filter rule you implemented that did not work as intended? Documentation on the Exim system filter is available at:

    Thank you.
