    Hi there,

    I'm the server monkey on my company's new server and I've been given a fun request. Currently we have SpamAssassin set up and working, which is all going fine. However, several of the users (as we're running the company's email through the server) are requesting to have SpamAssassin turned off for their account.

    I presume this is possible - is there anyway to do this within WHM or Cpanel 11. If not, what changes will I need to do via shell?

    Thanks

    Deano

    First, go to WHM -> Service Configuration -> Exim Configuration Editor and scroll to the bottom where you see the SpamAssassin options. Uncheck SpamAssassinTM: Enable for all users without the option for users to shut off per account if it is checked and click save.

    Now individual users can turn SpamAssassin on or off.

    Hi there, I've tried that, but I can't find anywhere on cpanel where the users can turn spamassassin on/off -- it's running on the latest release version. Could I be missing something?

    If you go through the user's cPanel interface (assuming you are using the X3 theme), in the Mail section click on the icon for SpamAssassin. At the top you should see a message "SpamAssassin is currently Enabled." and a button below that to disable SpamAssassin.

    I may be wrong but I think the OP is referring to individual e-mail accounts. SpamAssassin is enabled for domain.com but the user wants to disable SpamAssassin for bob@domain.com but the rest of the domain.com e-mail addresses still use SpamAssassin.

    As far as I know there's not a way to disable SpamAssassin in this regard. The closest I can come is to set a whitelist_to for bob@domain.com. SpamAssassin would still scan all messages sent to bob@domain.com they would just never be flagged as spam.
