    The disable spam assassin button no longer exists in the cpanel.

    I hvae tried removing the .spamassassin file and the .spamassinenable file
    but cpanel still says spam assassin is enabled

    Thanks

    Hello Audrey,

    Are you the owner of the server itself, or just an account on it? If you are the later, you would need to get in touch with the server owner, as there is an option that does not allow user to turn off SA, that sounds like it may be checked. If you have root access, you can change that option yourself.

    Hi Chris

    Thanks for your help with this

    I do have root access - what file should I be looking in on the server?

    Thanks again
    Audrey
