filter vs filter.yaml

view story

http://forums.cpanel.net – Hello, We just recently added email accounts to our domain and the hoster provides cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1) for configuring various email/filtering aspects. When I define an account level filter, ~/.cpanel/filter.yaml is created. When a user level filter is defined, ~/etc/domain/email_user/filter and filte.yaml are created. What is the difference between filter and filter.yaml and how are they applied by the email server? filter does identify itself as an Exim filter, while filter.yaml has no identifying information. Thank you. (HowTos)
