How To Enable - Disable Spam Assassin

Spam Assassin is an inbound mail filter that is included with all Linux Shared Hosting accounts. It's used to filter out incoming spam email once it has been received by your server.

To enable/disable Spam Assassin please follow these steps:

  1. Login to your cPanel and look in the Mail section
  2. Click Spam Assassin™
  3. Click Enable SpamAssassin to enable
  4. Click Disable SpamAssassin to disable

You have now just enabled / disabled Spam Assassin.

Required Score:
0 means everything will be marked as Spam
5 is the default
10 means nothing will be marked as Spam

Just setup Spam Assassin once, and it works for all of the emails on your account. Spam Assassin will mark your spam so it is easy to notice. (You can even make spam assassin automatically delete those emails.)
