    You will need to enable spamassassin and spambox for the accounts and customize spamassassin for your usage and this will be an ongoing struggle.

    Please visit http://spamassassin.apache.org and learn how you can tweak spamassassin configuration files. The files are available under .spamassassin folder in your account. Or you can tweak some settings from your control panel as well.

    Stay well away from boxtrapper/spambox, they will cause you lots of problems.

    SpamAssassin will help, as will nolisting (Google is your friend here), and if you want something really simple, you can't go past the MailScanner service at www.configserver.com - in fact, you'd be well advised to get one of the server packages which include security hardening.
