I have installed Exchange 2007 SP 1 on Windows 2008 Server.  Everything is going well, except SPAM.  I did NOT install Edge Transport YET (on second server).

I have read articles and learned that Antispam is integrated in Exchange 2007.  Now, installing AntiSpam Agent is been a failure.

When I start EMS the menu comes up, and I am at powershell C:\window\Systems32.  How would I change the directory to C:\program files.  CD does not work.  (sorry, I am not a programmer but a learner)

I need to install AntiSpamAgents.ps1. (located in c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\scripts)

The answer could be silly but it is better to learn by asking.

Running the command from DOS prompt - does not work.  I get the following TXT file

Well, to change to program files you can do:

cd "C:\Program Files" -- With the quotes

The exchange Anti-Spam is very weak... I would recommend you check out GFI MailEssentials

the command with quotes worked and able to execute the command with some errors.  It is very length.  I checked the Microsoft Exchange Console and Hub Transport did create a tab with Antispam.

My favorite is GFI Mail Essentials, I did use it on Exchange 2003 on Windows 2003.  I did install and never worked.  Later on, I got in touch with GFI and they have confirmed GFI does not support Exchange 2007 x86 (32 bit) - NOT YET>

Thank you for your help.
