Importing a set of rules to Account Level Filtering. Possible?
« on: January 07, 2016, 12:37:20 AM »
Two years ago something happened and my main email address has been getting lots of spam. Not good news for someone who has been using an email address for over 12 years without any major problems.

My native language is not English so all the 'good' emails do NOT contain words such as erection, loan, money, sale, clearance, viagra, deal, arousal, pills, prozac etc...

I have been trying to use the spam assassin trainer but with not much success at all. OK, it filters around 50% of SPAM emails properly but what bothers me is that in spite of marking the same kind of email multiple times, it still makes it to my inbox. For example I have an email whith a subject like "anti aging solution" and in spite of moving it to my-spam and running sa-trainer, it still appears in my inbox.

I am aware that intelligent email filtering is not based on single words but some other complicated calculations but in my case eliminating some single words would make a big difference.

Adding filter after filter manually in cPanel is a nightmare so is it possible to import the whole list at once? In which folder is the email filtering file located? Maybe I could have a look at it and edit it in notepad?
