cPanel’s All Round up  Security :

cPanel has always been celebrated for its email capabilities which is one of its most popular features. However, the real cPanel webmail hidden gem is BoxTrapper. BoxTrapper can be enabled with just one click which relieves the inbox from unwarranted spamming hassles. Another significant feature of BoxTrapper is that once the user emails someone, they automatically get added to the user’s whitelist. On enabling BoxTrapper users can specify email addresses, domains or even specific subject lines that they would want to whitelist. However, even if someone does not set up a whitelist the email senders would then get a friendly and customised email asking them to confirm their identity.

Another significant feature of BoxTrapper interface is the Review Queue which gives the user access to held up emails and they have the option of either holding them back and adding them to the white list or deleting them entirely. The BoxTrapper list is another effective tool which compares every new message that the user receives against the following lists

  • Whitelist- the system delivers message directly to the user’s inbox
  • Ignore list- The system deletes messages without a notification
  • Blacklist- the system deletes messages and the sender receives a reply that indicates the system blocked  the message
  • Forward list- the user can enter an email address that they wish to add to the forward list and click save. The system automatically forwards whitelisted emails to these addresses.

An Effective Tool for security Measures:

BoxTrapper’s Review Log displays an overview of all the emails received to the email accounts on a daily basis. Spam in cPanel can be a major problem with messages flooding users inbox, there also remains an additional anxiety about messages containing virus attachment or duplicitous links. In cases where BoxTrapper receives an email with a spam score lower than the established value set in the minimum Spam Assassin’s spam score then it gets bypassed to BoxTrapper panel. BoxTrapper is an effective tool for use in emergency cases such as to divert mail bombing or other hazardous attacks. BoxTrapper acts as a protective sheath over cPanel operations covering it from end to end spamming discrepancies.
