Spam problem with exchange 2003
Posted on 2005-03-12
I am running Exchange 2003 enterprise on Windows 2003 standard server. We have Mcafee Groupshield version 6.06 with the built in spam filter.
We have recently been quite badly hit by spam from a particular domain (same message sent 1500 times per hour for the last day and a half!).
I have configured groupshield to delete this message which it seems to be doing quite successfully as no copies are finding their way through to the mailbox concerned.
Unfortunately, a copy of the email seems to getting through to exchange as the log files in my MDBDATA seem to be growing at an alarming rate. (a new 5MB file every couple of minutes). I know that these files are cleared once the backup runs but this won't be until Monday and I'm worried about my drive filling up.
Can somebody suggest any ways I can configure exchange or groupshield so these emails simply bounce and don't end up clogging up exchnage log files??
