Spam emails on Exchange 2003
Posted on 2010-09-15
I need help!!!!!
Okay so lately my company is being inundated with spam emails, the usual "Grow this" and "Payment Recieved", etc. However it is increasing in number and also is sending spam from our own email addresses back to ourselves and attaching other employee email accounts as CC's.
This is really becoming a problem and I need to know the best way to remove whatever it is that is causing the problem, or stop the spam at the server.
We are running the following:
Windows Server 2003 SBS (SP2)
Exchange Server 2003 v6.5 (Build 7638.25: SP2)
Symantec Brightmail Message Filter v188.8.131.52
It seems that Brightmail is continually stopping its updates which is allowing the spam to flow through. I have spoken to Symantec and they are looking into it. However, does anyone know of a better program that will run on my system to stop the enslaught of spam we receive?
I had heard about IMF (Intelligent Message Filtering) but I don't think I cannot seem to find it on my version even though I am running Exchange Server SP2 which I believe it is meant to come with.
Any other programs would be appreciated or even if someone can help me get IMF running.
