cPanel API 1 Functions - Email::delfilter


This function deletes an email filter.


cPanel API 1 is deprecatedDo not use this function. Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the following newer functions:


 LiveAPI PHP Class

$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$del_email_filter = $cpanel->api1('Email', 'delfilter', array('', '') ); // Call the function.

 LiveAPI Perl Module

my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
my $del_email_filter = $cpliveapi->api1('Email', 'delfilter', ['', ''] ); # Call the function.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. This example is present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.

We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.


<cpanel Module="Email::delfilter( $FORM('email','dest') )">
