Spam Management On My Tch Domain


Recommended Posts

Yes, I was an idiot. At one point I put my email address on a forum and of couse it's now in the hands of spammers world wide. I was able to go back and remove the address from any souce I found but of course it's too late. I don't want to toss the address aside so I need some advice.

 

What spam management package does TCH have and are there any good tutorials on how to configure it? Are there any good third party (free) packages that we can install too?

 

Thanks!

There is a good discussion about spam in this thread.

 

To summarize some of it:

 

Never give out your main email address, set up a forwarder to your main address if needed, then you can remove the forwarder if needed

 

Enable spamassassin in your cpanel

 

Use something like Poptray and K9 or Antispamservant to control the spam that spamassassin doesn´t catch. More about this in the thread I linked to above.

Spam Assassin catches less and less spam due to the fact that spammers have figured out ways to beat it no matter how low you set your score for good emails.

 

I recommend that you install something client side to handle what Spam Assassin does not delete. I use AntiSpam Servant and it has served me well.
