Can someone please post (or link to) the correct procedure for configuring either cPanel and/or SpamAsassin to do this?
Go to your web-based mail program (I'm using Horde) and create a filter rule that checks for the wording that SpamAssassin adds to the subject line, and have that rule delete those e-mails forthwith.
This worked, but even though I had no false positives with SpamAssassin when sending spam to the spam box, I wasn't real comfortable with just deleting them, so I set it back to filtering messages to the spam box. But when I had it set to delete them, delete them it did! Those nasty spams never made it to my e-mail client.
With SpamBox enabled in SpamAssassin they never make it to my e-mail client either; they just go into Horde's spam box, and I don't see them until I log into Horde and check the spam folder. The longer I go without any false positives, the more likely I am to go back to just deleting them.
Unfortunately neither the cPanel or the SpamAsassin websites appear to document any way of configuring SA so that spam emails will be automatically deleted.
Auto delete is the only option with my host. I won't use it till they set up a review directory so we can play with the 1-10 setting. They say that it's coming.
