How can I delete spam before it arrives in my email account?

If you would like to delete messages that are marked as SPAM, please read the following instructions:

  • First login to your cPanel control panel and activate Spam Assassin if you didn't have it enabled already.
  • Next in cPanel, click on the "E-mail Filtering" link under the Email Management Tools section.
  • Click on the "Add Filter" link.
  • Now, choose "SpamAssassin Spam Header", "begins with", and then enter "Yes" (no quotes) in the box.
  • Click the submit/activate button.

All emails that are marked as SPAM by Spam Assassin will now be deleted from the server and will not appear in your e-mail accounts.
