Will "MagicSpam" and "MailScanner" work on a Cpanel server? (both installed)

Thanks for the delay in response however, we require a bit more information, would you be able to provide us with the MTA you are using, OS Version, and MagicSpam Version as well.

We will be sure to get back to your promptly once we have this information.

Thanks for contacting MagicSpam Support Team!

Using:

MTA: exim-4.69-29_cpanel_maildir
OS; Centos 5.6
WHM 11.30.1 (build 4)
CENTOS 5.6 i686 standard

I would be using the latest MagicSpam version.

Thanks,

MailScanner presents a bit of a different approach - and seems to have a few different variants in how it integrates. If you are talking about 'direct' integration as binary proxy, then it should work together, as long as it does not modify any of the information that is passed through the SMTP process tree (as passed through the 'filter' macros). Other variants (pass through proxy service, secondary machine gateway etc) may cause issues with MagicSpam as such approaches negate the 'destination mail server' nature of the default cPanel methodology.

At this time we can not directly state that it will work out of the box in concert with Mail Scanner as there are too many variables evident. May we however suggest that you try one or the other first to determine performance?

Are you talking about accessing the MagicSpam WHM module or something else? This forum is about MagicSpam, not cPanel support in general.. but you might want to check firewall restrictions, as well as any cPanel specific access restrictions such as .htaccess Allow,Deny settings or similar.

If you are receiving "The page cannot be displayed" messages strictly for the MagicSpam module, then please double check that you are not blocking port 6244 to the computer / IP range in question.
