Email filtering with SpamAssassin

NOTE: You can use Spam Box or Email Filtering to move spam from your inbox to another folder. Check your Outlook or other mail client for filtering tools.

Unfortunately, SpamAssassin no longer rewrites your emails’ subject lines.

Fortunately, you can accomplish email filtering with the tools we provide:

  • In your webmail, create a folder called Spam.

  • In cPanel, under the Mail section, go to Email Filters.

  • Next to your email address, click Manage Filters.

  • Click the Create a New Filter button.

  • Give the filter a name like SpamAssassin Rule.

  • Change the From drop down to Spam Status.

  • Change the equals drop down to begins with.

  • In the large blank below, type Yes.

  • Change the Discard Message drop down to Deliver to folder.

  • Click the Change button and choose your new Spam folder.

  • Click the Create button.

Now you can use IMAP and subscribe to the new Spam folder.
