How to activate the Anti-Spam filter?


CPanel Spam Filter is one of the most effective options to mitigate the problem of spam. Although it is impossible in these times eliminating all the spam that an email account may receive.


CPanel Spam Filter performs multiple tests, both in the headers and in the body of the message, to detect and block any spam. In addition to the tests carried out on email, it also checks with external databases to detect any type of threat quickly and efficiently.


When spam mail is sent, the same message is sent to as many recipients as possible. There are organizations dedicated to check and list these emails already marked as spam, so that they can be identified and blocked without having to re-diagnose.
