Exchange 2007 AntiSpam Settings

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a new installation of Exchange 2007. I setup the AntiSpam feature. I need to set it up to basically push everything that it says is Spam to the Outlook Junk Mail folders. Right now its doing that for some emails, and then rejecting others. My client basically needs to get all email, and then go through their Junk Mail folders to weed out the Spam emails. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

You have three options - delete, reject and quarantine.

What you could do is setup a script to send the user a list of messages:

Glen has also written a script to release the messages from the quarantine:

I was able to turn off the Gateway filters and turn up the threshold for the Junk mail. It seems to be handling the spam the way the client wants to.
