How do I get Exchange to send any emails with "[SPAM]" in the subject to the individuals' “Junk E-Mail” folder?

The anti-spam program (BitDefender for Exchange) inserts "[SPAM]" into the header of any emails it considers spam. I'd like them to automatically go into the “Junk E-Mail” folder of the individual. I don't want to have to manually create a rule in each person's Outlook Web App account, so hopefully there's a way to do it in Exchange itself??

I'm running Exchange 2010 (SBS 2011). BitDefender doesn't seem to have a way to do it.

Hi,

So I guess you need something like this:  

New-InboxRule -Mailbox anderson -Name ADM_ITRule -From it@apatricio.local -ApplyCategory 'Orange Category' -MarkImportance 'High'

But I do not think you can create server side  rule for "With specific words in the body", as this is a client only rule.

Please see these two articles: http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2010/management-administration/managing-inbox-rules-exchange-server-2010.html

You can create transport rule in exchange. so it will work for organization wide.
when you create the transport rule. you can mention if subject contains [SPAM], it will go to junk folder.

Thanks.

Followed http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124737(v=exchg.141).aspx to create a Transport Rule. Didn't seem to be an option to send it directly to "Junk E-mail" but I was able to set the Spam Confidence Level to 9 (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms998863(v=exchg.65).aspx), and so far OWA seems to always put those in "Junk E-mail"...
