    I would like some input on this rule and where I would put it, I am still new to exim and I would like to do my best to deal with this spam crap.

    !verify = sender/callout

    Go on, have a guess
    That's an ACL, so would go in the first set of 3 texboxes in the WHM > Exim Configuration editor. The second of those textboxes is the one you want, and it would need to go after the " accept hosts = :" line (leave a blank line after that line).

    Do note that if you check WHM > Exim Configuration > Verify the existance of email senders then this will insert a "verify = sender" into the ACL section anyway, so adding what you want may not make much if any difference.

    Your best bet is to install and antispam add-on, such as exiscan or MailScanner.
