Exchange 2010 Edge Server Antispam Config - 3 easy questions

I do not want emails from certain external domains to be blocked, regardless of the content.  

How would I go about adding an allowed exception for an entire external domain on my Edge server antispam settings?

How would I add individual external users to an allowed exception list?

How would I view a list all emails that have been recently blocked or rejected?

Good DaY-

If you dont have Anti Spam functionaluity installed - you should first install it

Regarding Question 1-

By Default- You shouldnt have Exchange blocking Domains. In organization configuration-> Hub Transport-> Transport rules-> You can see transport rules there, which would dctate any domains to be refused.

Question 1

In addition, you can place a IP address on a send or recieve connectot to explicitly accept or explclitly deny a sender or recipient. look in server configuration->Hub transport->Anti-spam tab. -> you can utilize the IP allow list or block list -> this will allow/deny  a sender/reciever,, depending on weather this is a send or recieve connector.

Question 2

IS a little more involved (not much), but you should read the article on it and then just set it up in the antispam filer. In this case sender filtering

Question 3

You need to understand what type of filter you are looking for in order to see about reviewing  filtered messages. There are so many ways to filter the messages in 2010 that I cant   single a specific one. Some messages are dropped, some are stored in QUEUE. Some may be controled by the clients, and some may not. Here are the types.

Connection filtering,
Content filtering
Sender ID
Sender filtering
Recipient filtering
Sender reputation

You would look each type of mesage filter up and you can see if you can review the massages, and to what degree you controll them .

Here is a MS article that should answer all your questions about reviewing the messages and more.

I hope this helps
