    Hello,

    I am quite confuse with the use of Spam Assassin in cpanel. I have Enable Spam Assassin and Enable Spam Box in cPanel. I have some questions:

    1. I login one of my email account with Horde Webmail. I noticed that the spam folder will not be created by cpanel. Do I need to create it manually?

    2. Do I also need to set a new filter rule in Horde webmail and configure that the spam emails (subject contains *****SPAM*****) go to the spam folder?

    3. How do I test with a "SPAM" email to se if the setting is working properly?

    Thanks and best regards

    Alex

    Go on, have a guess
    The spam folder will be created once you receive your first spam that is detected by SA. You can send yourself an email with the following line in it and it should be detected as a spam email. Make sure that it is the only line in the email:

    Code:
    XJS*C4JDBQADN1.NSBN3*2IDNEN*GTUBE-STANDARD-ANTI-UBE-TEST-EMAIL*C.34X

    Hello,

    Thanks for your information. I enable the Spam Assassin and not enable the Spam Box to do some testings. The results are a bit different from what I have expected.

    I sent a "SPAM" email to my email account. Yes, Spam Assassin has identified the incoming email as possible spam. However the Subject line of the "SPAM" email do not marked with *****SPAM*****. Therefore I only know that this email is a possible spam only when I opened the email.

    According to my information, Spam Assassin will mark the subject with *****SPAM***** when it has identified as possible spam.

    Please advise.

    Thanks and best regards

    Alex

    you need to tell SA to do this

    SpamAssassin Configuration (required to rewrite subjects)


    rewrite_header subject and put in *****SPAM*****
