i don’t generally recommend enabling a spam filter on hosting accounts. reason for this is because they do generate false positives and may block emails that you should get. i do get requests to do something about the large amount of spam a user gets. there is a simple solution i can provide that can help. its called SpamAssassin.
by default, i have this turned OFF on all accounts. just for the fact its a new account and on a new account you don’t tend to get too much spam right away. also, i want to make sure your getting all your emails so there is no question that your email account is having issues. but if you had your domain name for a while and it was active on the net, you will see that your spam will increase and increase over time.
if you are interested in using this feature, below is a link directly to SpamAssassin’s web site. take a quick glance at the FAQ’s to see if its the right fit for you:
just keep in mind….. it may create false positives, especially if the sender sending email to you is on a known blacklist.
