Enabling Apache SpamAssassin

Spam is really annoying and it can eat up disk space if it is not effectively managed. By default, your main email address will accept email for any non-valid email on your server. This can cause a spam issue because your account will automatically accept email to common addresses such as sales@yourdomain.com, info@yourdomain.com, etc. To combat this, you should enable SpamAssassin within your cPanel account.

Login to cPanel (use My NodeSpace for a quick login), and under Email, select Apache SpamAssassin.

If SpamAssassin is disabled, click on the button to enable it:

If you receive text like:
