Anti-spam and Anti-Virus for Exchange
What's everyone using, in the 25-99 exchange account arena, for anti-spam
and anti-virus? I tried Microsoft's free anti-spam engine for exchange
2003, but man, I was flaggin simple, client based emails, and a 89%

I need to get something in place relatively quick though.
So you where using MS Exchange Intelligent Message Filtering (IMF)?
It is actually quite a good solution for the user base that you have.
Did you mention you where losing legitimate emails?
If so I would recommend archiving at the gateway level, t...Re-route spam mail NDR to an existing mailbox

I have been told that using the autopreview feature is the
same as opening an email and thus can generate more spam
by automatically "opening" unwanted email. Can anyone
verify this? Thanks.
Previewing a message can launch some viruses - check out
I would recommend turning OFF previewing messages.
I am not sure how it could generate more spam unless
there was some scripting language that grabs your e-mail

But BEWARE of viruses and "previewing".

Can anyone provide some quick and dirty solutions to
stopping spam? I know Exchange is a very powerful mail
server, but tapping its capability has proven to be a
daunting task. For instance:
1) Does anyone know a way to configure Exchange 2003 to
perform aggressive sender verification on incoming emails
(perhaps using reverse DNS) and reject emails where the
sender's email address cannot be verified?
2) How about setting Exchange to verify/reject incoming
email domains against known real-time blacklists?
3) How/where to check detailed logs for incoming/outgoing
emails to see...Blocking spam
I have a spam filter which works ok but
I keep getting the same spam message (Viagra)
on my outlook express email
I have highlighted it and then gone to
messages and hit "block message" and
the message is deleted.
Next day I get the same spam.
I get no other spam
Is there something else I can do?
Help would be appreciated

I keep getting spam messages from

How can I block or stop these in Exchange 2003 or Symantic SMS for exchange.
well, if you are using Symantec for SMTP or Exchange, you can just block
those email addresses since you should never get anything from outside that
says it is coming from inside (your domain). Also, you can try using a DNS
black list (either through Exchange or through Symantec) if you feel it is
just Spam. Most of the time I see emails lik...email spam blocking my mail HELP PLEASE!!!
Can anyone give advice please.
I have just rebooted my comp and reactivated my freeserve
email account. The problem is an old email address which
is clogged with spam is downloading into outlook and I
can't get to my emails. I have tried using the message
rules, but this only seems to work AFTER recieving the
emails and I also tried making a account for the pain-in-
the-bum address and UNticking the 'include this account
when recieving mail'with no luck. I have done it before
but can't remember how! Help would be really appereciated!

I just want to gather some info about Anti-Spam software solution. I am at a
loss which software should I get. So maybe this is just a poll. Which
antispam software are you using and why? Any review included will be good.
Thanks in advance.
I'd start with IMF since it is free (assuming you have Exchange already),
easy to deploy, and integrates well with an Outlook/Exchange environment.
If IMF lacks some bells & whistles that you need, or doesn't work well for
you then start looking at other stuff.

I have found one that works great. Bait and Tackle from turbogeeks (just

Is it possible to set up a rule that if the sender is not

Get Outlook 2003 - it's built-in filtering can do exactly that.

Would you rather *not* send any message to users at all to let them know
they are being spammed ? Would you just block the whole thing and send
message only to administrators to avoid bothering users, for example ?
I'd block it entirely. It isn't spam - it's actually a virus....

Create a rule to filter on the body or subject.
I am pretty darn sure someone got into our mail server (through open relay) and is clogging the heck out of our server. What happened is my co-worker accidentally had relaying enabled and now that we disabled it is still going on and we cannot get our mail in or out of our Exchange server. Any tips on what might not be disabled on the relay server or finding out the IP of who is sending all this spam through us?

I have 2 rules that checks the destination address and moves it to another
When I turn on these rules, it's just like if the rule is applied but the
spam filter won't check it after. With the rule on, every spam sent to the
email address will reach the folder, and with the rule off, the spam filter
will catch it and put it in the Junk E-Mail folder.
How can we tell Outlook to check for spam and forget rules if the email is
considered as a spam message?
