Hello,

Having following problem receiving email:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    user@domain.com

Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.7.1 Message rejected as spam by Content Filtering. (state 18).

I have applied on my SBS 2008 exchange server a IP ALLOW LIST specifying gmail.com,. still I get this failure.

How can I get this fixed! Reasons why?

This is a common misconception and in a nutshell you're configuring the wrong filter.

Try this:

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenderDomains gmail.com, *.google.com

The * would bypass all subdomains of google.com (for example, mail.google.com and web.google.com)

Open the Exchange Management Shell:

View Content Filter configuration,
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Get-ContentFilterConfig

Bypassed Senders (example):
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenders donotspamme@calazan.com, jdoe@abc.com

Bypassed Sender Domains (example):
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenderDomains test.com, *.xyz.com

Important Note: BypassedSenders and BypassedSenderDomains are multivalued properties. When you use the Set-ContentFilterConfig cmdlet, it will overwrite the values of those properties. If you just need to add more senders or domains, please follow the example below.

Use the Update-SafeList cmdlet to update the safelist aggregation data in Active Directory. Safelist aggregation data is used in anti-spam filtering in Microsoft Exchange Server

Update-Safelist -Identity XXXX@test.com
