We are having problems with receiving mail from some domains. They are either passed through to SPAM or bounced back to the recipients.

What is the best way to add a specific domain to our Exchange Server (2007) so that it is identified as an acceptable recipient. ie let the mail in without entering the SPAM or bouncing back.

Any help would be very welcome.

Thnaks.

Hi, you need to whitelist the domain by updating the content filter. You can do so through powershell.

Hello, and thanks for your assistance.

I do not doubt your recommendations, but as this would seem to be a pretty basic requirement, is there no facility within the sbsconsole or Exchange System Manager to do this? I have only used the shell once before, and my experince was not good! lol

If this is the ONLY way, I will have to give it a go, but does not everyone need to do this?

Many thanks.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

could we use the "organization config" - "Hub Transport" - "anti spam" - "IP Allow List" to do what I need?

Many thanks.
