Exchange globally disable junk filter

In Exchange 2010, is there a way to globally disable the junk folder/filter?  Our ISP also has a spam filter and the boss doesn't want the employees to have to check 2 places for false positives in spam.

You can disable Content Filtering through the Shell:

Set-ContentFilterConfig -Enabled $false

Open in new window


Or, you can disable per user with the Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration command (just copy/replace for each user and put in a .ps1 file to run it):

Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration "David Pelton" -Enabled $false

Open in new window


You can also change the Intelligent Messaging Filtering options.

So if I do the command "Set-ContentFilterConfig -Enabled $false" from the shell, it will globally disable the Exchange/Outlook junk filtering?  That's what we want.

Yes.

One of the anti-spam technologies built into Exchange 2010 is called Content Filtering. Enabled by default on the Edge Transport server and scanning all inbound emails, the Content Filtering analyzes inbound mail to see whether or not it is likely to be spam. Content Filtering performs several tests on inbound messages to determine whether or not a message is spam. Some of these tests include analysis against information updated from Microsoft Updates. Content Filtering assigns a Spam Confidence Level (SCL) value to message, where the higher the value, the more likely a message is spam. It can also consult a list of allowed or blocked phrases to either pass a message through, or immediately block it.

Content Filtering is what control how/when mail is sent to the Junk Email folder.  You can either configure it locally, or disable it entirely like I mentioned above:

Set-ContentFilterConfig -Enabled $false

Open in new window


FYI - That is through PowerShell, not CMD
