Introduction

  • SpamExperts is an advanced anti-spam and email filtering solution. SpamExperts uses mechanisms specially designed to avoid inaccurate detection, complex self-learning systems for filtering, and SPAM pattern recognition mechanisms.
    SpamExperts scans all incoming emails for viruses, SPAM, phishing, and botnets with an accuracy of 99.98%. The filter is activated by domain and protects all email accounts regardless of their number.

Requirements

Steps

  • The first step in using SpamExperts is to configure SpamExperts MX for the attached domain. We can do this by using the Modify MX tutorial.

mx.spamexperts.com (priority 10)
fallbackmx.spamexperts.eu (priority 20)
lastmx.spamexperts.net (priority 30)

mx spamexperts

  • After modifying the SpamExperts MX we will set up the E-mail routing from the local cPanel account.

  • Once the MXs have been modified, the domain is connected to the SpamExperts system and all incoming e-mail traffic is filtered and all the domain-related e-mail accounts are protected.
  • SpamExperts can be used immediately without the need to make additional settings.

 

Login to the SpamExperts panel.

  • The SpamExperts panel is divided into the following sections:

- General

  • Continuity > Delivery queue incoming - This section displays emails that were not delivered and their status. If the e-mail server is not available, the e-mails will enter in the queue where they are waiting to be delivered to the recipient.
    The system will try to deliver the messages for a period of time, and if this is not possible the system will forward the message to its sender.

  • Continuity > Compose e-mail - From this interface, the user can send emails when the email server is not accessible or has problems.

  • Continuity > Clear Callout cache - SpamExperts checks the cache if the message received has an existing email address. This cache is restored automatically every few hours but can also be restored manually.
    This helps when an email address has recently been created or deleted.
