cPanel Assassin SPAM control @ Domain Level?

Post by ColinM » Sat Mar 21, 2020 2:20 am

Hi All,
I'm in the process of transitioning my business and (eventually) my clients from Cloud Hosting to CPanel which involves migration to a new upstream provider - lots of fun and careful documentation!

One thing I'm looking at know is Assassins ability to blacklist and block unwanted emails at the domain level.

I've looked at Assassin help on the web, stack overflow and raised a ticket with my new provider.

All say that you can blacklist at the domain level by adding either of the following to blacklisting via the Cpanel email filters > advanced:
@<domainname>
#@<domainname>

However, I've found adding either of the above doesn't prevent the respective domain emails coming through. Sure, I can just add the full email address (that of course works), but that doesn't stop blacklisted senders just creating a new email address.

Your experience and advice on this please?
Yours truly

Or you can block a range of IP's using a .htaccess file on the server.

Thanks BC - you have an amazing ability for finding stuff! 8)
Unfortunately the specification of an @ preceding the domain as a wildcard doesn't seem to work - I'll need to find out where to apply globa as mentioned in one of those posts.
