    Hello,

    How to tune the mail server to block the incoming spam, currently we are using

    cPanel/WHM 11.32.3 (build 21)
    OS : CENTOS 6.2 x86_64 standard
    CSF firewall
    ClamAV AntiVirus

    we do use SpamAssassin To fight against spam mails but still receiving uncountable spam mails

    any solutions to this ?

    You might check to see which accounts are getting the most of it and look at their Default Address settings to be sure they are set to FAIL. Not sure how helpful that is here, but it can lead to lots of spam if set to something else.
