Blocking spam sent in picture format

Hello world,

I recently installed Exchange SP2, and IMF V2 is working very well. The xml 
file to block certain keyword is great.
The next challange i'm facing is alot of the junk mails which simply has an 
image in the body of the emails are getting pass the filter. I can't block 
those becase the spammer are copying paragraph from books, wep pages.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to block those spams?

Thanks in advance.
Ramy

The IMF isn't going to block image traffic unless that traffic fits
the algorithm as spam.
Get a non Microsoft spam filter in addition to the IMF.

right...many of the 3rd party solutions have been working on this, and the 
one I use (Tumbleweed) is doing an excellent job of catching that stuff...

I agree.  We've been running Tumbleweed EMF in front of Exchange for 3 years 
and it does a fantastic job.  IMF is great at "mop up" duty behind the 
Tumbleweed gateways, but I wouldn't dream of asking it to shoulder the whole 
load.

How do I stop Outlook from marking messages as spam?

Excel cell formatting #2
Hi, Is it possible to formal a particular group(s) of cells such that all numeric entries are always expressed as negative e.g an entry of 150 will be reflected in the cell as -150. Thx, Don- Hi Don!

Also, if you type in -150 you'll get --150 unless you use the format string -#;+# Here, the positive entries get formatted with -150 and negative with +150. It'll confuse most users and I'd look for better approaches t...

Getting BLOCKED:BLOCKED:BLOCKED in e-mails that are sent that have links.

When we click on the link that has been sent by another internal member the link doesn't work. How can I fix this?
