Procedures:

  1. To Configure Spam Experts Outgoing Filter, Login to your account and click "Services" then find Outgoing Email Filtering  Service and click on active button, or the row not the domain name. Once the page loads, click on "Login to SpamExperts Control Panel".
  2. Spam Experts outgoing filter service can be configured using two methods;
    • Outbound SMTP Server (Basic Mathod)
      This method uses Spam Experts as your outbound SMTP server and will require that you configure user authentication on Spam Experts dashboard. Webmail will not show sent items in this case, because all outbound Emails were not sent through the cPanel server. 
      1. The first thing you will need to do, is to create an outgoing user.
      2. Click "Manage users" under the Outgoing section.
      3. Locate the "Add a user" section.
      4. Select the "Authenticating User" tab.
      5. Enter the desired username/email prefix and password and click "Add" to create the account
      6. Configuring your Email Client
        • Mail Hostname: smtp.antispamcloud.com
        • Mail Username: the full email address you created above
        • Mail Password: the password you specified above
        • Outgoing Port Number: 587 (Supports STARTTLS)
    • Smart Host Setup (Advanced Method)
      This is the recommended method. It Re-routes all outgoing traffic through the system and Webmail can see all the sent Emails normally.
      1. You need to add your dedicated IP address to SpamExperts control panel.
      2. Click "Manage users" under the Outgoing section.
      3. Locate the "Add a user" section.
      4. Select the "Authenticating IP  or range" tab.
      5. Enter the desired dedicated IP and click "Add". If you do not have a dedicated IP, you may purchase one from within your account for any active web hosting service. 
      6. Create a technical support ticket and request support to activate Smart Host Setup for your desired domain name.
  3. It is very important to setup and configure the domain SPF record to ensure Email deliverability. SPF records are TXT records placed into a domain's DNS settings. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) is a way to restrict which mail servers are allowed to send email for your domain name.
    1. If you have an exisiting DNS record that begins with the value "v=spf1" and you are only sending Email from one source, then you may replace it or delete it and create a TXT record for the outgoing sending domain with the following details "v=spf1 include:spf.antispamcloud.com -all"
    2. If you already have an SPF record setup and you are sending email from other sources instead of adding the "include:" line you can append the following "a:6205.submission.antispamcloud.com a:release.antispamcloud.com" to the exisiting SPF record.
