I have Exchange Server 2003 SP1, soon will be upgraded to SP2. I also have spam filter set up, but it doesn't provide Regular Expression filtering.
What I'm looking for is if there's a way to filter emails based on regular expression and send spams to the receiving user's Junk E-mail folder in Outlook. I am trying to implement this not using any spam filter software(If it's not free), but with some code works which can be applied to Exchange Server.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm sure many people had felt regular expression is very effective on filtering emails.

There is nothing in Exchange 2003 that can do what you want. You need something like Vamsoft ORF to do that.
Any reason you have delayed SP2 for Exchange 2003 so long. It is at least three years old.

How about Event Sink with script? Is it possible to filter incoming messages based on regular expression and forward to the target user or any specific mailbox?
Some old applications on the server has conflict with SP2, so it's updated with critical and security updates only until I may upgrade exchange server itself.

You would have to get something created for you, and every time it is updated it would have to be updated. It isn't something I have done.

Are you EE support team member or should I leave this question open? I just got an impression that you're EE team member and I may need to close this question. If I found answer to this, I also want to post answer later.

I am not a team member. I just score points highly.
Any reason you gave me a C grade?

I'm sorry. I just felt your answer was not what I was looking for, but your suggestion was worth to look at. I was not looking for commercial solution and was trying to get someone who's suggesting script work as I stated on my question.
I selected 'solved partially' and it gave C grade. I agree your suggestion with Vamsoft was better than. How can I change it?

You need to hit the request attention button at the top and ask the mods to re-open the question. Then you can close it again.
