High quality, yet affordable cPanel Linux hosting!

cPanel Global Email Filters Interface

The Global Email Filters interface in your cPanel control panel lets you configure filters for all the emails your domains' email accounts receive.

Please note that we strongly recommend using multiple, simple filters instead of a single large filter. The server's mail transfer agent Exim can handle many small rules more efficiently than it handles one large rule.

Please note that you can't use the BCC field in a filter as the recepient generally does not receive this field in an email's header. .

Accessing the Global Email Filters interface

Login to your cPanel control panel using your web browser. Go to 'http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/' (without the quotation marks). So if your domain name is 'example.com' you should go to 'http://www.example.com/cpanel/' to login to your control panel. The Global Email Filters interface is in the "Email" tab, simply click on the name or the icon to enter.
