Spam Assassin

What is Spam Assassin?

Spam  Assassin is a great industry standard spam fighting tool, that comes as a free service on most hosting accounts. We recommend to activate it as soon as you create an account or log in for the first time. You only have to enable it once and it will work for all your email accounts.

SpamAssassin scans the contents of each message before it reaches your Inbox, searching for words, phrases and formats common to Spammers. The search then assigns a score, higher being more likely to be Spam and lower being less likely. You choose what score is allowed to enter your Inbox.

  1. Log in to your Just Host cPanel account.
  2. Select Email from the Sub menu
  3. On the side bar, select Anti-Spam Filtering.
  4. Select Learn More under SpamAssassin™.
  5. Click Enable or if already enabled click Disable.
