Hello,

We have recently setup an in house Exchange 2010 Server. Several messages (many of them are actual spam, but many are not), are being tagged with SPAM in the subject line. There are many times where this is not appropriate. How can I check and turn this setting off?

Note - We are not using ANY anti spam services on the Exchange Server that I KNOW of. What can I check?

Thank you!

exchange doesn't tag as **Spam** it is likely to be something else

You might want to check the your antispam server configuration that is before your exchange

Antivirus software can do this - AVG is one that can do spam scanning and tag the messages in this way. It could also be your internet service provider or whoever routes your email.
As already stated - Exchange doesn't tag messages like that.
