Mail Assure Help

cPanel and WHM Configuration for Mail Assure

The following instructions describe how to:

  • Restrict inbound delivery to Mail Assure only
  • Disable catchall behaviour
  • Route outbound mail through Mail Assure

Inbound

In WHM

As the root user:

  1. Set the Service configuration > Exim Configuration Manager > Access lists to Only-verify-recipient to contain:
    • 185.201.16.0/22
    • master.antispamcloud.com
  2. In the Service configuration > Exim Configuration Manager > ACL options set:
    • Ratelimit suspicious SMTP servers > False
    • Ratelimit incoming connections with only failed recipients > False
  3. In Server configuration > Tweak settings > Mail set:
    • Email delivery retry time > 5 minutes
    • Initial default/catch-all forwarder destination > Fail
    • Enable BoxTrapper spam trap > Off
    • Enable Apache SpamAssassin™ spam filter > On
  4. In Email > Spamd startup configuration > Allowed IPs set:
    • 185.201.16.0/22,95.211.160.147

    This will restrict the server from receiving mail for all domains to only accepting mail from Mail Assure.

In cPanel

As the admin for the domain, or higher:

Select Email > Default Address > <domain> > Discard the email while your server processes it by SMTP time with an error message.

Outbound

In WHM

In Service configuration > Exim Configuration Manager > Mail set:

  • Smarthost support > * smtpout.mtaroutes.com::587

This should be <asterisk><space><smarthost address><double colon><port number>.
