My understanding is that to make some custom rules, you should edit:

/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

It's been moved to:
/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf.rpmsave

after the last update and now when I put something in, like:

blacklist_from [email protected], it doesn't seem to work.

According to this, local.cf is no longer supported as of version 54:
Custom SpamAssassin Rules

So, does anyone know the "correct way" to put in custom, server-wide rules in WHM?

Thanks.

If you don't manage this, there is an exim config change that you can do which allows you to build an email blacklist.
I've put this in to practice an it works well.
