sbs 2003 faxes getting caught by exchange spam filter

i am using the built in fax server in sbs 2003 for routing faxes. they come in just fine and route to a particular folder just fine but when they route to an email address, the exhcnage intelligent messaging filter catches is as spam and archives it inthe default spam folder. i recently upgraded to exhcnage 2003 service pack 2 on an sbs 2003 server with sp1 and this started happening.

is there any kind of whitelist for exchange 2003 sp2 spam filtering and if not, does anyone kow how to stop this?
thank you

Go into Exchange Sys Manager.
Then Expand Global Settings.  Right Click on Message Delivery and go to the Connection Filtering tab.  Click the Exception button and you can white list people there.

Alternatively you can add the IP address of where it's sending from by clicking Accept.

Oh I forgot, you need to enable connection filtering just like you did IMF.
