    I am trying to set up mail filters in cPanel on Bluehost.

    This is set up as a page with drop down boxes to select the various options.

    A single filter with one action works fine.

    If I set two actions "Discard Message" followed by "Stop Processing Rules" the filter does not operate.

    When I test the filter I get a message:-

    Testing Exim filter file "/etc/vfilters/chartwellnorth.org"

    Unseen save message to: /dev/null 0660
    Finish
    Filtering did not set up a significant delivery.
    Normal delivery will occur.

    Is this a cPanel problem or is it related to the Bluehost implementation?

    Can anyone offer advice.

    This is a bug in how we create the filter. When 'Stop Processing rules' is selected, we add the 'unseen' directive to the filter. This is incorrect as according to the Exim Filter Specification ( http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/filter.html#SECTsigdel ):


    Thank you for the notice.

    Thank you. I hope this will be corrected in the next version.

    Is there a possibility of a patch for this problem or release of an updated version of cPanel in the near future?

    This is fixed in EDGE and will be part of cPanel 11.24.

    A possible work around right now would be to modify the rules directly to remove that option. However, that must be done with great care.

    Where can I edit the number of lines checked in each message? Many spammers are loading their emails up with paragraphs of extraneous data so that the message will be longer than the default SA/filter is setup to check. At one time this default was 5000.
