Where does SPAM in SBS2008 go to?

We have a single SBS2008 server, and we feel that some of our mail is being caught as SPAM.

I cannot see where this option is set on our server, and would like to check what is being filtered. Can anyone advise where the SPAM filtered mail ends up, or where the setting is held, so that we can check the destination?

Many thanks

Spam is rejected - sent back to the sender.

If it doesn't arrive - the sender should be advised accordingly.

OK Thanks. We have had a couple of people send us mail today, which has not arrived. Can we modify the allow list to add their domain to it? If so where and how do we do this.

The people concerned have not received a bounce back??

Any ideas?

If you know their IP Address, you can add it to the IP Allow List, otherwise, there is no way I am aware of to Whitelist by domain.

I have been using the in-built Anti-Spam tools on Exchange (as a test) recently and shortly switched back to Vamsoft ORF (www.vamsoft.com) as the in-built tools were too inflexible and kept rejecting too much mail.

ORF allows numerous Whitelists other than just IP addresses.  It is seriously well priced at $239 per server too.
