    Hello,

    I've tried a couple of different methods of accomplishing this but haven't found one that works the way I want. I have an external spam filter that I'm forwarding into cPanel. It marks all detected messages by prepending ***SPAM*** to the subject line. What I want is to have Exim automatically filter these into an IMAP folder named "Junk" under the recipient's account when they are received, and I'd like a way to do this globally so I do not have to configure it per-user.

    Thanks for your input!
    Ron

    You can take an advantage of SpamAssassin feature named “SPAM BOX”. You need to enable this feature from cPanel -> SpamAssassin -> Spam Box.

    SpamBox will deliver any emails identified as spam by SpamAssassin into a separate mail folder named "spam". This "spam" folder will fill up and should be emptied regularly from web mail login. This will be a global rule which will be applicable to all the email addresses of your domain.

    Unfortunately since SpamAssassin is not processing the mails, the SpamBox method does not work.
