Exchange 2007 Quarantine box empty

I've configured spam filtering on the exchange server and when I enable quarantine, the mail is not delivered anywhere. If I turn it off, it flows as normal.

The mailbox I've directed it to is a public folder. I've also specified my own mailbox, but neither work.
[PS] C:\Documents and Settings\user>Get-ContentFilterConfig

Hi, if you do message tracking on the message after content filter is enabled where do you see message routing to.

MH-AdministratorAuthor Commented:
The routing log shows it coming from postmaster@domain.com to Spam_Repository@domain.com, which is correct. Also, I've sent an email from my gmail account to that email address and it works fine.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

lol - I meant that while the above statement is true, spam is not routed to the quarantine email address.

Basically, when the quarantine is off, I receive spam. When the quarantine is on I receive no spam, but the spam is not routed to the quarantine box, though message tracking shows that the spam email is being sent to the "Spam_Repository" address.

The point I was trying to make with the email from my gmail account is that the email "Spam_Repository" address is active and can receive email.

Do this get-mailboxfolderstatistics -id domain\mailbox
Then send some spam and check the message size

Also u can do get-mailboxstats to check item count

If they r increasing means the emails r there just that we r not able to see

Trying using owa to logon to mailbox

OK, so is it not possible to route these to a public folder? I set myself as the quarantine and checked deleted items. It was there.

NavdeepCommented:
i think if you create a mail enabled public folder. then it would go there. Again do a message tracking to find that out.

That's what I was doing before and it wasn't working. When I sent them to my own account, they didn't go to the inbox, but instead to the deleted items. This might be a stipulation.
