    Is there any aspect of the cPanel system that can be used as a system-wide, keyword based anti-spam filter?

    Let's say that I wanted to send to /dev/null all incoming email with the word "viagra" in the subject line, and do this for every single email address hosted at the server. How would I do this?

    Thanks much.

    By the way, I had been using /etc/antivirus.exim for this, but the rules I enter in this file no longer have any effect, even though the following IS in the /etc/exim.conf file:


    Here is a sample of my rules in the above file, but again, none of this has any effect (and yes, this used to work fine):

    # Exim filter
    if error_message then finish endif
    $message_headers contains "viagra"
    or $header_reply-to contains "internetseer"
    or $header_Subject contains "Buy and save"
    or $message_headers contains "Buy and save"
    or $message_headers contains ""
    or $message_body contains "Facebook_details"
    or $message_body contains "mailbox utility"
    or $message_body contains ""
    or $message_body contains ""
    or $message_body contains ""
    or $message_body contains "microsoftofficeupdate"
    or $message_body contains "viagra"
    or $message_body contains "phentermine"
    save "/dev/null" 660
