How to configure IMF in Exchange 2003 server?

This is using Exchange 2003 sp2. Recently, I've started to use IMF. I set the value for SCL greater than or equal to 7, to be ARCHIVED; and 6 to be store into the junkmail. And of course, I tick the Intelligence Message filtering in Default virtual smtp server, and then restarted the SMTP Service.

Any other suggestions to make the antispam work to eliminate let's say up to 80% accuracy. Or else, what other antispam software should I try?

IMF as such is not effective on it is own to fight Spam. Well refer http://www.amset.info/exchange/imf.asp to make sure you configured everything right.
Also, I would recommend that you use other Anti-Spam products. Here is a list http://www.msexchange.org/software/Anti-Spam/, that you can evaluate from. Also read: http://antispam.msexchange.org/

I use GFI MailEseential ( http://www.gfi.com ) to filter spam. It has multiple modules that will filter spam. I find it very effective. I also use GFI MailSecurity as an anti-virus on the Exchange server as well as attachment filtering. There is a trial version of both available for download.
