Thank you, now how do I verify that they are the latest? And, this server is using WSUS for updates and the filter is set to automatic, does it go out to MS to get them or will WSUS grab and deploy them?

Here is the snippet from MS technet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997658%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx


Microsoft Exchange 2007 Standard Anti-spam Filter Updates offer anti-spam updates every two weeks via Microsoft Update.

The Forefront Security for Exchange Server anti-spam update service is a premium service that updates the content filter daily via Microsoft Update. In addition, the premium service includes the Spam Signature and IP Reputation Service updates that are available on an as-needed basis, up to several times a day. Spam Signature updates identify the most recent spam campaigns. IP Reputation Service updates provide sender reputation information about IP addresses that are known to send spam.
