    What kind of security do you think I should be using to keep email accounts secure, on cPanel. Does cPanel already keep accounts secure?

    I believe CPanel is most secure in terms of security. The webmail service is quite secure and i've never had problems using it. Also i think CPanel uses Thrid-party webmail services like Squirrel mail, Horde mail and Roundcube. If you could find stuff on how to secure these, you'll be pretty much good.

    CPanel has also suggested this :

    Upgrade your mail to maildir format

    Maildir format adds extra security and speed to your mail system. Newer installs use maildir by default. 
    If you’re running an older copy of cPanel, you’ll probably want to upgrade using /scripts/convert2maildir. 
    Make sure to back up your current mail before converting to maildir, this can be done within /scripts/convert2maildir. 
    If you see maildir is enabled when running /scripts/convert2maildir, you are already using maildir, and will not need to convert.

    As updated DaReaper CPanel is most secure in terms of security, You can see SpamAssassin under Mail section in Cpanel.

    SpamAssassin is an automated email filtering system that attempts to identify spam messages based on the content of the email's headers and body.

    There are also user-level and account level filters to set filters for a particular email account. In other words you can block any email id for a single email account or also for your all accounts.
  6. Keep on using your C-panel, its the most secured place. I am using the same since 3 years. No issues encountered until now.
