    Hi there guys,

    Using ConfigServer's install of Mailscanner/MailScanner Front End

    I have a question. I have three clients(and I would like it myself) that have asked if the mail could immediately be purged if tagged as spam.

    The reason for this in all of our cases is because when travelling, if we check the mail on our phones, we have to load 20 pages worth before we get a valid mail and all of our phone bills are suffering.

    Is there a way on a "per user" basis to jettison any tagged mail, not having to deal with a mailbox filter at all?

    thanks,

    On a per domain basis, not a per user. It's in each domains cpanel, or by going to WHM > MSFE > Modify User Settings

    Hi there Verdon and thanks for the reply.

    I was hoping per user. Thanks very much for the clarification though.

    thanks,

    you can do it on a per user, its just a bit manual, you need to edit:

    /usr/mailscanner/etc/rules/spam.action.rules
    and
    /usr/mailscanner/etc/rules/spamhigh.action.rules

    basically if you look at the stuff that is already in there, you will see how you need to format the lines and what information they need, just ensure that your user@domain.com lines come before the *@domain.com line, otherwise I think it inherits the settings from there, regardless of which mailbox you use.
