Spam Protection of Email - Exchange 2010 - SBS 2011
Posted on 2013-01-11
We have recently moved our company over to SBS 2011 Standard (great product) however under our security TAB there is an entry - Spam Protection for e-mail - Critical.
We HAD (we no longer have it) - Microsoft Forefront as our Email Spam Protection program - and was removed in preference for Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange.
(Briefly - we trialled MS Forefront to see what it was like but already had the Symantec suite paid for - so when the MS forefront trial ended we removed it and then installed Symantec Mail.)
The problem did not exist when we had MS Forefront as we changed the 'E12AntiSpam.xml' file to refect the change to - '$(Get-TransportAgent "FSE Content Filter Agent").Enabled' - however since removing MS Forefront the problem has returned.
I HAVE changed the 'E12AntiSpam.xml' file back to its original code and restarted the server but to no avail.
Am I right in thinking that somehow we need to tell Exchange 2010 that Symantec Mail Security is looking after the spam as we did for MS Forefront - or am i missing something more fundamental here?
I have enabled anti-spam on the Exchange server and is showing in the Exchange management console - 'Organisation Configuration - Hub Transport - Ant-Spam' - content filtering IS enabled.
Can anyone please throw any light onto this issue please.
