Exchange rule for all mail boxes

Is it possible to configure exchange to take and e-mail whose subject contains SPAM and automatically drop that into the Junk E-mail folder, we have over 20 users and i would like to know if we could do this for all the accounts in some sort of global policy or rule?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Many mail scanning programs now offer this, such as TrendMicro's Cleint/Server/Messaging Suite.  

You can also create a group policy to do it as well, but it would be done on the client side (in Outlook).  You need to download the Office Group Policy Templates so that you can easily configure a policy for Outlook.

Although, I would first look at the program you are using that is modifying the subject line with the word SPAM... does it have a rerouting option?

If you are using something like Symantec Mail Security this has the ability to delete, qurantine, or log the message. However if you are using exchange 2003 with the new SP install, IMF on the exchange side has the ability to move messages to the junk folder base on the SCL rating. You can play with this setting to adjust you junk mail threshold.

menreeq,

I would have to dive into those templates to find out... the same way you would.  In the world of technology, there are far too many millions of things to know... so it's not necessarily the exactness of what you know, but how to get to the answer that's important.  I've provided that path for you.

How about taking a look through them and letting me know what you find.

I looked through them before asking you, and found nothing that would do what I need.  But I think I found a solution using custom weight list exchange now available in Exchange SP2.

You know.... the thing is that Exchange and Outlook have terrific SPAM filtering.  If you install the Intelligent Message Filter on Exchange and enable the Junk Mail Filters on Outlook, you'll eliminate about 99.9% of all SPAM.

Yes i have been using it but it's not working that great for this client, we are going with SpamSoap.  The custom weight list worked.  I will give TechSoEasy the points, primarly for his effort.

I've never seen an instance where IMF doesn't work well.  It does have to be tuned however to work better.

Thanks though.
