    Is there any way that I can import email addresses that I want to block into the cPanel filter or even the BlackList for an individual email account?

    Hello :)

    There are no native options available to block a list of email addresses with cPanel access only. Is there a specific reason you want to block these addresses? Is it due to SPAM?

    Thank you.

    You hit it on the head exactly. I am trying to control spam (I know I will never eliminate it) so I am trying to use a combination of BoxTrapper settings and email filters. Even though I am the admin for my domain I do not want to do it for the domanin since other people have different needs and sensitivities so I have several email accounts that I want to limit the spam. So I was hoping that when I create a filter in cPanel that I could copy that same filter to other emails rather than create them nes in each account.

    If you have suggestions on controlling spam I would love to hear them.

    You could ask your hosting provider to assist you with this task, as they will have a bit more flexibility to manually copy filter rules with "root" access to the server.

    Thank you.
