    Ok so we just moved our website from a windows server to a linux server running WHM & Cpanel.

    I'm total noob but I've set up spamassassin with these rules:


    Filter Destination
    $h_X-Spam-Bar: contains "+++" Discard
    $h_X-Spam-Status: is "Yes" Discard
    $header_subject: contains "Acai" Discard
    $header_subject: contains "You've received a greeting ecard" Discard


    Can anyone help me out? or point me in the direction of a tutorial to set up a good set of rules.

    At the moment I'm getting atleast one spam email per minute sent to the catchall, which I can't turn off either (another problem) but we have about 80 email accounts on this server and they are all getting spammed... people won't stop calling me to ask when it will be fixed.

    Please help :(

    I like to enable both RBLs they have available.

    You can lower the max spamscore to discard email.

    That usually helps a fair amount, some other options you can also try in there.

    Thank you!! You're awesome.

    This looks like it should help a lot... I currently have spam assassin set to discard anything over the score of 3, do you think this is too low? 5 just wasn't cutting it.
