This is a 2-Exchange servers 2007; one hosting mailbox/CAS/Hub transport, and the other Edge transport server. Recently, a lot users complaint that they receiving a lot of spams. Anti-spam feature is only setup on edge-transport server. On this server, I open exchange management shell, and type:

      get-agentlog -startdate "10/22/2009 00:01am" -enddate "10/22/2009 11:59pm" > C:\agentlog_22102009.txt

I found that quite a lot of mail recipients that the backend exchange server (with ip: sent are either problematic or non-exist. Pls see the excerpt of one of the entry from the above log:

   Timestamp       : 10/22/2009 6:09:16 PM
SessionId       : 08CC210F7AF1C2A5
IPAddress       :
MessageId       : <c66e98b5-5016-47b2-8194-5635be456136>
P1FromAddress   : <>
P2FromAddresses : {}
Recipients      : {}
Agent           : Content Filter Agent
Event           : OnEndOfData
Action          : AcceptMessage
SmtpResponse    :
Reason          : SCL
ReasonData      : not available: policy is disabled.
Diagnostics     :

I just don't understand why the reasondata Is: not available: policy is disabled.? Does it means that outgoing mails from backend exchange server (with ip doesn't subject to antispam check? I believe the above entry is related to so many spams receiving day-by-day.

Pls enlighten.
