Hey there,

Can anybody give me the best advice for cutting down spam on cPanel/WHM servers?

I have Spam Assassin enabled, but still get Viagra, and spam phishing emails coming through to me and my clients.

I want to nail down on all the spam problems once and for all - any advice?

What software should we install? Post INI? Google Apps? any other WHM software?

Thanks
Sheldon

google apps does the best job of spam filtering that we've used.

Google apps is your best bet.
Been using it for the past few years.
It helps the server works faster by sending emails to google server.

Don't forget to change the mx to google and erase the mx from whm panel to google only.

Hey guys,

Is it possible to use Google Apps through the Server some how or do you need to set up Google Apps for each email account of my clients, and set them up on Google Apps and so on???

Hi SparxNZ,

THe google apps will work on domain and subdomain, you will need to set the NS and MX up on the WHM panel (or equivalent).

You will need to setup one google apps for one domain or subdomain in your preference.
It can also saves you time to have alias, etc:
you are admin of admin@onedomain.com and also the admin of your local branch admin@two.onedomain.com, you can set this thing up so you will have one inbox for those emails (no limit for this i think.. :))

Let me know what can I help again with.. :)

wihtout creating google accounts for each of them, you can use user level filtering from cPanel which works good as well and it's user friendly.
