I have a windows exchange server 2003 standard that I had configured with Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) and it was working OK but people were complaining that some viagra messages were coming through. People wanted to know if word filtering could be used to filter for the spam that was coming in.
I know that IMF Ver.2 comes with a "Custom Weighting Feature" (CWF) and I decided to configure it. Well long story short once I did the spam flood doors opened up and now all kinds of spam are coming into all the user's mailboxes.
My questions are:
1. how do I disable the CWF feature to get the IMF working properly again?
2. how can I properly configure CWF to work and filter out specified words.
Bellow you'll see the xml I used for the CWF .
Please keep in mind that I know NOTHING about the code bellow I simply copied it from an article and inserted the words I wanted to filter in place of the ones that were there before.
Thanks in advance for your help.
