Good Morning does anyone know a way that i can use Exchange 2003 to spam a specific email address/subject from arriving either users inbox or junk email folder? I dont want to modify the SCL rating as this could potentially block some customers email!

thanks

You can block from a sender address.

In Exchange System Manager, go to Global Settings / Message Delivery - Properties.
Then go to the Sender Filtering Tab
You can Add an email address to block and choose an option (checkbox) such as drop connection.

Then go to the Administrative Groups and find your Exchange Server.  Expand to Protocols / SMTP and then go to Properties for the Default SMTP Virtual server

On the General Tab, click the Advanced button, then select the Address for the TCP 25 and click the Edit button.  Make sure the checkbox is enabled for the Sender Filtering.

OK thanks for the input. the only problem is that some of the times the email comes into the system, the email address changes which will make it harder to narrow down. is there away of blocking the subject at all?

Do you have any Anti-Virus for Exchange installed?   Most should have some type of keyword/phrase  blocking or content filtering.

For just Exchange by itself, I don't know of any subject line blocking.  
If the mail comes from a specific IP address you can block the IP.   Same area as Sender Filter, but look at the Connection Filter tab
