    No one tried this one?

    I'm also thinking, going to look into this later.
    (Got my VPS yesterday, so busy configuring it and moving domains for a while now)

    Edit: here is URL to web site http://assp.sourceforge.net/

    It looks very interesting:

    Here is another page for it:

    http://www.grscripts.com/ ASSP Deluxe for Cpanel

    You can purchase some scripts to integrate it in WHM/Cpanel for $15 or have them install it for $60.00

    If I just purchased a fresh VPS with a clean Exim install I would most definately look into ASSP. Suposedly it uses far less resourses than Spammassassin does.

    From the ASSP Deluxe site:

    Why ASSP is better than any other SPAM solution for CPANEL ?

    - It's more powerful and complete of any existent
    SPAM solution
    - It runs such as a service and uses low cpu . It runs on VPS too.
    - It includes server wide antivirus (Clamd)
    - It works with a clean exim configuration
    - It installs ONLY on /usr/local/assp , it's only a perl file and
    requires few perl modules.
    - Uninstallation in few seconds
    - Set it and forget it
    Also:

    ASSP is simply fantastic, it includes RBL , SPF , Baesyan filter with possibility to report false positives, HELO control , Penalty box , and much much much more.

    ASSP had small success with Cpanel community because it's hard to configure on a cpanel server. ASSP Deluxe for Cpanel makes this work for you .

    I think I'll try this soon.

    Looks like there are some new versions just around the corner with "big" improvements as it's written?

    It would be nice if the ASSP Deluxe for Cpanel worked with RV Skins. Yes the new release of ASSP 2.0 is scheduled for the 15th of this month.

    Install this a couple of days ago. It has all but eliminated spam on my domain! I was constantly fighting with spam assassin and I was still getting a bunch of spam.

    So far I am very happy with Assp and the cpanel deluxe script.

    Sure you can. It is like any other program you can get free from the internet. But we do not provide support for it: because we neither develop nor sell it to you.

    i wanted to get this but you can only pay by PayPal which isn't good as they don't like my card. Apparently they are going to add 2co soon as well - September i think

    I currently use this with great results. There are some things that sneak in, but it is usually because assp fixes them and then the spammers go around it.

    it is an ongoing battle that no one will ever win, but assp sure helps a ton!

    I have had no issued with it on cPanel 11... the cpu utilization is really low and if it gets a little quirky, it restarts itself (or is that my monitoring tool?) and keeps on ticking.

    Real spam in my personal inbox (on with my customers) has been eliminated up to 99%
