How to Disable Incoming Spam Protection in cPanel

For your security, spam protection is enabled by default for all HostM hosting accounts, and we do not recommend disabling this.

Nevertheless, should you still wish to disable incoming spam protection for your hosting account:

  1. Sign in to your HostM hosting account’s cPanel.

    Your cPanel access details are listed on the hosting account’s Info page in the Client Lounge.

  2. Under the Email heading, click Spam Filters.

  3. Under the Process New Emails and Mark them as Spam option, click the link labeled Spam Threshold Score.

  4. From the drop-down menu, select Custom.

  5. Modify the custom value to 50.

  6. Click Update Scoring Options to save your settings.

Incoming spam protection should now be disabled on your hosting account. Please note that this may result in a large number of spam messages showing up in your inbox.
