How to Edit BoxTrapper Forward List in Cpanel

Box trapper is a spam filter software that blocks all unwanted email from entering your inbox. Boxtrapper aims to block email address that did not reply to the verification email. The verification email is automatically sent to the original sender of the messages. Boxtrappers functions as a spam filter for all the email address that are hosted on the server. You don’t have to go through the same process of configuring it one by one for every domain on the server. The boxtrapper works by a challenge response verification.

The boxtrapper is not enabled by default and the cPanel administrator is responsible of enabling it. You can deactivate the boxtrapper anytime by clicking on the Disable button next to the Enable button. You can add your own list of approve email address into the white list. You can also include spam email addresses in the black list.  Although cPanel allows you to configure the boxtrapper, you should not modify any settings. You can edit the confirmation message that will be sent to the sender of the email messages. In addition, administrators can permit, deny or ignore messages from particular email accounts by editing the white list, black list or ignore list. The review queue allows you to see which email addresses are pending in the boxtrapper. You should review this from time to time to make sure you did not miss any important messages that should be send to your inbox.

The forward list contains approved emails that have passed the authentication of the boxtrapper.
