In order to enable your spam protection on your cPanel, follow the guideline:

  2. Choose your Web Hosting(cPanel) service;
  3. Press the button “Access Control Panel” on the left menu and then the button “Click here to access control panel“.

In order to enable the spam protection, you simply need to press the first button “Enable Apache SpamAssassin“. The page of confirmation will be displayed and the spam protection will be active from that point.

The Apache SpamAssassin evaluetsevery email you received on variety of factors and assigns a grade from 1 (unlikely a spam) to 10 (most likely a spam). You can enable the “Auto-delete” function, which automatically deleted all the emails you received, which were graded with a specific number (for example 6). So if the email is evalueted 6 or more, it will be deleted automatically, if the received email is evalueted less than 6 it will be delivered to your mailbox.

In order to use this option, you simply need to select a “Score” and then press “Auto-Delete Spam“. The confirmation page will be displayed after this.

Note. There are additional configuration regarding “Apache SpamAssassin“, but we will not talk about it on this article.
