A customer told me they had sent me an email but i have not received it
Im using exchange 2007 built in anti spam and had the reject settings at 8.
I have now enabled the quarantine and set it to 6 (not sure if i need a restart for this to take effect)
But need to know why i did not receive this mail

enable verbose logging for your receive connector and monitor for connections from the sender

you could try the message tracking log
get-messagetrackinglog -server hub -start "9/16/2010" -sender jim@ee.com

Why dont you run get-messagetrackinglog from exchange shell and let us know the results.

Also
let us know if you have a backup MX configured to that of your ISP.

Since the customer didnt get a NDR i am assuming the message was delivered.

I have  Q,
Why dont you try to disable to AntiSpam for Exchange for about 10 miniuts and do the test
see if you can get the Emial , that mean that its an AntiSpam other wise it will be another problem and we will see what it could be
NOTE: Check evetlog Errors, some time Hub Transport tell why it block this message !!

With that level of blocking, 8, message could have been deleted as a False-Positive.

Try to decrease the value and monitor.
