Have you enabled the Anti-Spam features on the Edge Transport Server?

By default, then Anti-Spam role will live on the ET server and if you have not enabled the various features, then you should.

Personally, I disabled all of mine in favour of Vamsoft ORF - www.vamsoft.com ($239 per server) and it does a brilliant job of eliminating spam.

The ONLY thing I have Exchange doing filtering-wise is Recipient Filtering - nothing else.

Start Outlook 2010 Server, and on the Home tab, in the Delete group, click Junk and Junk E-mail Options.
On the Safe Senders tab, click Add and enter an e-mail address or domain name.
example: abcd@xyz.example.com
Click OK

Pls do the same for repeating the new junk email id.
