I keep getting this error when I try and run the antiSpam powershell on my exchange server.
--------
PS C:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\scripts> ./install-antispamagents.ps1

If you run get-transportserver command in Exchange Management Shell, then it will list the Transport Servers from your environment..

install antispam agents options are available only for exchange 2007 and exchange 2010 servers.

Seems like you are trying to run from Exchange 2003. ?
