    Never-ending spam. I use cPanel. What am I doing wrong?

    Hello everyone, I'm a webhost and I constantly find my sales inbox bombarded by spam messages about the most random stuff. It's mostly about fake stock and cialis tablets, but nonetheless its annoying and doesn't stop even with SpamAssassin enabled.

    Is there any way to at least CUT DOWN on this spam if not end it for good? I would appreciate any advice or tips on the subject.

    Have you looked into implementing Domain Keys and SPF?
    Are you using Bayesian logic to help cut down.

    What is your reject score in Spam Assassin?
    What mail server software are you using? Are you requiring authentication on SMTP traffic?

    Why don't you try cPanel's email filtering? You can enter keywords like "cialis". All emails with "cialis" in the subject or body will be blocked.

    If you can tolerate delayed emails, rbllists+greylisting is highly effective.

    Turn 'catch-all' settings OFF!
