Hi,

We use Rouncube to check emails, but for some reason a particular email address keeps going straight to the spam/junk folder. Roundcube doesn't seem to have a filter option to whitelist the said domain name to go through. So we went to the CPanel control panel, into spam assassin and whitelisted it there. But that didn't seem to have worked. It still goes straight to spam/junk folder.

Then we tried switching to Horde, because Horde seems to have a whitelist option. We whitelisted it there. But that didn't work as well. So what are we doing wrong here? Or has this happened before?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

What is noted in the headers for the email that is moved to spam? Does someone also have an email client connected to the account?
Hi Lauren,

Which line am I looking for on the header? It's quite long. I believe they are using Outlook for their client.

The full headers would be helpful, especially the SpamAssassin portion that uses X-SPAM-* and looks similar to this if available:

Code:
X-Spam-Status: Yes, score=6.5
X-Spam-Score: 65
X-Spam-Bar: ++++++
X-Spam-Report: Spam detection software, running on the system "server.myhostname.tld",
    has identified this incoming email as possible spam. The original
    message has been attached to this so you can view it or label
    similar future email. If you have any questions, see
    root\@localhost for details.

If you're not using SpamAssassin and they're using outlook to check their mail, it may be the mail client putting email into spam.
