We are trying to get IMF updates via WSUS.
WSUS is up and working fiine, Exchange version is Exchange 2003 with all SP's. IMF updates are enabled via the registry change. "Exchange Server 2003" is listed under Products for WSUS.
However, i never see any IMF updates to accept\install among all of the WSUS updates.
What am I missing?

Thanks

It is classified as an Update Rollup. I would look at your list of updates to see if they have come in first.

Update for Intelligent Message Filter for Exchange 2003.
Don't bother search, just list the updates by name and scroll through the list.

2nd link did the trick (I think). there are only IMF updates on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday's of every month.  You have to wait till then to see them in WSUS. I only put Exchange 2003 on my WSUS Product list this week. So I should get Ithe option for IMF updates on 2-18-09.  WSUS doesn't download the old one's because they expire (dissapear) after a few days.  
I will leave this case open until the 19th to make sure it works.

from the link:
- LAST and NOT LEAST: Wait for the update window to come around (1st & 3rd Tuesday or Wednesday of each month). Look for it on the Microsoft Update Site and PROMPTLY install the update when it is available.

If you miss the update, you'll have to wait another 2 weeks, as the updates "expire" and become unavailable (for some maddening reason, which is the cause of all these angry posts).
