SPAM-is there a way to put rules in Exchange 5.5 at server level to block keywords, etc?, SPAM, pcumming
We have Outlook 2002 and Exchange 5.5. We have been receiving an increasing amount of SPAM. We are educating our employees on the do's and dont's of using the Internet and giving out a work email address in certain situations.
Question 1. Is there a way to block keywords or add rules at the Exchange Server level (version 5.5) at each of our Exchange servers?
Is there a limit on keywords or rules, etc?? We have Outlook 2002 and can create it at the client level but prefer not to.
Since spammers can send jpegs and bmps of course we cannot filter on them. As a company we need to be able to send such to each other.
Also since spammers falsify header info, I think it would be a waste to try to capture a true from address or a made up domain name in the routing of the email or a false ISP.
Question 2. Therefore I am not sure an external product (which we are open to spending the necessary money on) would be as helpful as a decent set of rules.
