Hello,

We are using a Watchguard Firebox.  We are also using an exchange 2007 server.

Anti-spam is all disabled on the exchange server.

Our watchguard has a whitelist and if a domain is in the whitelist, the email should pass through untagged.

However, a lot of email is tagged [!!Spam] or [!!Blacklisted]

I am not sure what is adding those tags.  Looks like it is not Exchange and the firebox literature says it uses different tags.  Also, when I look at the specific email that is in the whitelist, the log says it is to pass through due to whitelist status.

We are also runnig Kapersky anti-virus.  

Can't figure out what is adding these tags...

THanks,
Bonnie

Do you have an example mail header that includes these tags?

X-KSE-AntiSpam = Kaspersky Antispam, so that's probably your culprit ...

OK - we only have Kapersky AV installed and I don't see any Kapersky plug-in in outlook.  So I am confused, but now I know where to look.

I just found that someone installed Kapersky Security for MS exchange servers on the exchange server - so yes it is Kapersky - Thanks again for showing me that the headers give this info.
