    Hello,

    We are using cPanel on VPS. SpamAssassin is not running on the server and it looks like Exim is ignoring SPF fails.
    How I can make sure that SPF checks are enable in Exim and working properly?

    Hello,

    SPF verification for incoming email is handled exclusively via SpamAssassin as of cPanel version 58. You can turn SpamAssassin on globally via the following option under the "Apache SpamAssassion Options" tab in "WHM >> Exim Configuration Manager >> Basic Editor":

    Apache SpamAssassin™: Forced Global ON

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    But I'm not sure that it's the best option to run SpamAssassin for small VPS, which is handling 1 site and 1 email account, and all messages are redirected to several another ones. There is no any need to analyze something. How we can just reject messages which with failed SPF? Or it would be better to look for another solution?

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Here are some instructions from a recent support ticket that will allow you to enable this option without SpamAssassin:

    Thank you.
