    Yahoo type spam guard on cpanel server

    One of my clients need a Yahoo type spam guard for his emails.
    Is there any such application which I can install on my cpanel server?
    Can you plz recommend ? How much will it cost?

    My client has 50 POP mails.
    Is there any web host who has such facilities in his server who can host only the emails?

    Hi Tina,
    I meant to say a Spam Guard which is as effective as the one Yahoo offers.

    Assume that 99% of the people reading this post have never used Yahoo's spam guard and don't know what it is.

    What is it? How effective is it? What, exactly, are you looking for as far as functionality?

    You are right Tina.

    I have not thought in that way.

    Plz tell me what type of 'Spam Guard' application will be most effective for my CPanel (Linux) server?

    Spam Assassin comes with most cPanel accounts...have you considered this yet? Wouldn't cost anything extra usually

    Thanks ashworth,

    Yes, SpamAssain is installed by default.

    But it is not upto the satisfaction of my customer.

    Is there any other option? I'm ready to pay a little extra.

    You might consider installing cpanel pro which gives your customers the added BoxTrapper tool.

    BoxTrapper protects your inbox from spam by forcing all people not on your white list to reply to a verifcation email before they can send mail to you.

    IIRC - you can fine tune SpamAssassin's ruleset to be as restrictive or as lenient as you want it to be - just modify the config file. That's whats so great about open source software!

    Thanks guys.

    I've installed cpanel pro and now I have the boxtrapper tool also.

    While I was searching the web I found this:
    http://www.rvskin.com/index.php?page=public/antispam

    I already have ClamAV antivirus installed.

    Would I need to go for

    Make sure you tell your customers that you are censoring their email.

    There's a great tutorial on forums.cpanel.net addressing just that.
