At Rhino Hosting we offer Spam Assassin as a FREE add on to our hosting packages.

SpamAssassin is an open-source anti-spam software that uses a variety of techniques to identify and filter out spam emails. It is included with cPanel and can be enabled in your email settings.

SpamAssassin works by assigning a spam score to incoming email messages based on a set of rules and criteria. The higher the score, the more likely the message is to be spam. The score is calculated based on various factors such as the content of the message, the sender’s IP address, and the message header information.

When a message is received, SpamAssassin checks it against a set of pre-defined rules or customized rules that you have configured. The rules include a combination of keyword searches, blacklists, whitelists, and statistical analysis to determine the probability that the message is spam.

Based on the spam score, SpamAssassin can take different actions with the message. It can mark the message as spam and deliver it to a separate spam folder or reject the message outright. You can customize the SpamAssassin settings to adjust the spam score threshold and decide how to handle spam messages.

SpamAssassin can be highly effective at identifying and filtering out spam messages, but it is not perfect. Some legitimate emails may be marked as spam, and some spam messages may still make it through. It is important to regularly review your spam folder to ensure that legitimate emails are not being filtered out.

In addition to SpamAssassin, there are other anti-spam solutions that you can use in conjunction with cPanel, such as third-party spam filters and email security services. These solutions can provide additional layers of protection against spam and other email threats.
