"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you install the Anti Spam tools? These are not installed by default for some resason. In exchange 2013, you need to configure them with PowerShell only.

Normally the default works fine already. You might want to add RBL's though. See TechNet:

Depending on the size of your organization and the level of spam you want to block as well as not overburden your staff, it might be a good idea to think of outsourcing this function.

We have outsourced our anti-spam and anti-virus for a very, very low price and the vendor also provides other features:

- Keeping a copy of all incoming and outgoing email for a month
- Blacklisting/whitelisting of sites possible either at domain level or user level
- Ability to use email (via web browser connecting to provider site) in an event of your Exchange server not online

Since we did this, traffic to our Exchange has reduced by 90+% and we use Fusemail (
