Hello,

I'm relatively new cPanel and have a couple of SpamAssassin questions.

1.) Can I set enable SpamAssassin by default but allow clients to disable it if they wish?

2.) How can I change the default score as 5 seems quite agressive?

Thank you.

Hello,

Whilst the above links have provided lots of great information, it still hasn't answered my questions.

1.) Can I set enable SpamAssassin by default from WHM but allow clients in cPanel to disable it if they wish?

2.) How can I change the default SpamAssassin score as I believe 5 is too low?

Hi akust0m,

I don't believe you can set Spamassassin 'ON' by default unless you FORCE it on

These are some settings you might want to look at :

Home »Service Configuration »Exim Configuration Manager
Apache SpamAssassin Tab

Apache SpamAssassin™: Forced Global ON [?] > Off
Turn on Apache SpamAssassin™ for all accounts (i.e. with no option to disable).


Home »Server Configuration »Tweak Settings
Mail Tab

Enable Apache SpamAssassin™ spam filter > On
Enable Apache SpamAssassin™ Spam Box delivery for messages marked as spam (user configurable) > On


Home »Packages »Feature Manager » Edit Feature List (for each list you use)
Apache SpamAssassin™ > Checked
Apache SpamAssassin™ Spam Box > Checked



As far as spam scores are concerned - Please see:

Default score for Spam Assassin

and you might also like to have a look at

Where to put custom SA rules (local.cf doesn't work)

Hope this helps
