Introduction

Users can configure the mail servers to scan the outgoing mails for spam with the help of Advanced Editor section of WHM’s Exim Configuration Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager). This feature blocks spam that the users deliver to the system.

However, this feature that the document explains, is basically an unsupported version and there is no guarantee that it will work properly in the near future.

It will be on the system administrator’s shoulder to manage and maintain the server’s database software properly, once a user perform the following steps on a server. Also, if any data loss occurred due to the performing of these steps, we are not responsible in any way.

It is strongly recommended to set the Apache SpamAssassin™ score with the Apache SpamAssassin™ Options setting available in the Basic Editor  section of WHM’s Exim Configuration Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager).

Scan Outgoing Mail With Apache SpamAssassin

Steps:

  • To begin with, user has to select the outgoing_spam_scan checkbox for enabling this feature. The box will therefore open, showing all information relating the spam scan process.
  • After reading it carefully, click on Save option.

 

Note that if system administrator enabled one of the two following settings in WHM’s Exim Configuration Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager), Apache SpamAssassin will automatically start scanning all the messages that the system will forward to remote email addresses:

  • Be aware of not forwarding to external recipients if it anyhow matches with the Apache SpamAssassin™ internal spam_score setting.
  • Also, be careful of not forwarding any mail to any external recipients based on the defined Apache SpamAssassin score.
