Exchange 2010 Causing NDR's

some specific senders trying to send emails to our domain are receiving NDR's such as this smtp; 550-This message contains a phishing attempt 550     [Heuristics.Phishing.Email.SpoofedDomain].

We are running exchange 2010 and we assume the anti-spam filter on exchange is sending the NDR's. What would be the best way to check this and allow the users to send to our domain?

Have a look in the following options. Sounds like your content filtering is kicking in (enabled by default).

1) Open the Exchange Management Console.
2) Click Edge Transport.
3) In the work pane, click the Anti-spam tab.
4) Click Content Filtering.
5) In the action pane, click enable or disable as required.

There are some more options other than on/off, for example, you could configure the Content Filter Agent to handle a message based on certain values. These actions include deleting the message, rejecting the message, and quarantining the message. It can also flag email to go to the junk mail folder on a client.

SCLs (Spam Confidence Levels) are rated from 1 to 9, so you may choose to set something like this:

1-5 Deliver as normal.
6 Route the email to the client’s junkmail folder.
7 Quarantine-the email is routed to the quarantine folder.
8 Reject the email is rejected and the sender receives a 550 response (your case).
9 Delete the email without NDR.

I hope that helps you further.

I would say let it be as sometime people do use some devices\sites to generate emails as their domain and only way to all these emails is to whitelist these IP's on your firewall and believe me its too risky

Well, that's certainly true, but it sounds like they're talking about legitimate emails that are being filtered. We are regularly adding sender addresses to white lists, providing we have confirmed that the domain those emails come from are indeed a legitimat source. You can whitelist a specific sender without allowing the entire domain. Of course spoofing is possible, but that is why SPF records etc. exist.
