Spam filtering is a good way to prevent spam from entering your mailbox. Here are some steps so set up spam filtering from your cpanel
1. Navigate to cPanel's Spam Filters interface (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Spam Filters).
2. Check whether Spam Filters is enabled. If it is not, click Enable Spam Filters.
3. Navigate to cPanel's Global Email Filters interface (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Global Email Filters).
4. Click Create a New Filter.
5. Enter the name of your filter in the Filter Name text box. From the rules dropdown below the filter name, select "Spam Bar" option
6. Enter the spam score in the text box. Represent the desired spam score with plus (+) characters. So, for spam score of 5, you will input +++++.
7. Select Deliver to folder from the menu in the Actions section.
- Enter the name of the folder to which you wish to send your spam email.
Click Browse to see a list of your folders.
- Click Create to create, save, and activate the spam filter.
For example, to filter all of the mail to which Apache SpamAssassin has assigned a spam score of five or higher, enter +++++ in the text box.
- Apache SpamAssassin examines every email message for spam characteristics and then assigns it an overall score based on the number of spam-related traits found within the message.
- The lower the spam score, the more aggressive the spam filter will be.
- A spam score of five (+++++) is a suitable setting for a single user. ISPs should use a higher score.
