Effective Junk Mail Filtering With Exchange 2003
Posted on 2006-10-23
What is the best way to combat the growing number of junk mail messages received, when using an Exchange 2003 mail server?
The latest Exchange 2003 service pack has been recently applied; however the volume of junk emails being received through to users mailboxes is currently growing. Is there any way of effectively improving the way Exchange filters junk emails, perhaps by either marking emails as junk as and when received at mailbox level ( in a similar manner to when Outlook 2003 is used without Exchange ), changing the filtering level, or indeed manually checking for junk mail filtering updates.
Alternatively is a third party product likely to be more effective, or indeed is the only way forward to consider a different ISP, who provides junk mail filtering prior to emails being received by the Exchange server?
