SBS 2008 Exchange Reject Spam - find logs?

Hi all,

I'm running the Exchange 2007 that comes with SBS 2008 and I have just learned that there is a default setting that rejects spam. I since configured the hub transport anti-spam settings to instead quarantine and forward the spam to a mailbox rather than reject it, but my question is:

is there anyway of finding out at least where the rejected emails came from in logs or something similar?

many thanks,

Warren

In my experience, the default spam filters are very lenient and you are unlikely to find anything valuable in the logs, but if you do want to see the logs, you would want to look in C:\program files\microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Logs\AgentLog

You may want to use PowerShell to access the logs, in which case this article should help you figure out the Get-AgentLog syntax to hone your searches.
