SpamAssassin plus Spark client

22 December 2020 - 10:07 AM

I used to funnel all emails through Gmail. I found it more useful to me to grab them separately with my current (default) email client, Spark. Ive set up accounts for each of my four email addresses sos I can clearly and immediately see to which an email was directed. Now, for that.

Two of them are Gmail accounts (as you know, powerful Spam filtering). The other two go through SpamAssassin accounts. (All have imap connections on iOS, iPadOS, and MacOS.) First, if SpamAssassin marks a message as Spam, does it go to client Spam? Second, if I add a filter to mark SpamAssassin addresses as Spam (i.e., move them to the Spam folder), will the client see them as Spam? Or will they, simply, stay inaccessible and invisible by the client on the SpamAssassin server?

I guess, part of the question is, do SpamAssassin rules get applied before forwarding takes place?

cPanel Redirect or htaccess fiddling? Which for me?

05 December 2020 - 07:16 PM

I want two simple things for my website content. Call it, sitename.com. (FWIW I have "Let's Encrypt" set up.) I want:

(1) When someone enters the names, in a browser, sitename.com or http://sitename.comor https://sitename.com, they should reach my content, and "sitename.com" or "https://sitename.com" should appear in the browser address as the result.

(2) When someone enters the names, in a browser, www.sitename.com or http://www.sitename.comor https://www.sitename.com the same result should occur as I have described in (1).

Can this be as well accomplished in cPanel Redirects as it can my fiddling with my .htaccess file? And would it be better to do one or the other?

How may I rename my cpanel/ftp/email/home folder? (May I?)e

I have seen posts on other host forums describing such a thing. They say it is possible but with dire warnings about name length and its impact on the file and database structure, and other implications. Is it indeed possible to change this name without getting into deeperdoodoo?

How may I enable iOS apps to publish to my hosted Wordpress blog?

I have a Wordpress blog hosted on an mddhosting shared server: apfwebs.com.

Of course, the simplest manner in which to publish blog content is to use the browser, go to wp-admin, and add a post.

Alternatively, the Wordpress app allows easy access: just provide the wpxadmin URL, username, and password.

Aside from the Wordpress app, though, Ive tried, and failed, with ByWord. To establish a publishing connection, again, I offer URL, username, and password. But I get the message Wordpress XML-RPC interface not found. Confirm that the given address points to a Wordpress blog.

Why one app should offer this error, and not the other app, has me puzzled. Suggestions?
