We are using Exchange 2013 on-premise, it is a recent migration.  Anti-Spam and Anti-Malware is configured on the Exchange server but we will move to another solution (possibly Exchange On-line Protection). It makes sense to disable at least the Anti_Spam on the Exchange server because it has been detecting false positives and this is a pain to work with. However, the only way to disable it seems to be to go through many cmdlets. Is there an easier way? Maybe a complete script?

Thanks.

To remove the antispam agent completely, open the exchange shell, change directory to the scripts folder and run "uninstall-AntispamAgents.ps1 "

All you need to do is run the following command in powershell...

.\uninstall-AntispamAgents.ps1

Make sure that you change the directory to point to the scripts folder on the Exchange server.

default directory is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\Scripts"

If you disable the anti-spam agents completely you will remove the recipient filter option. That could mean you are responsible for backscatter which can get you blacklisted.

So just keep the recipient filter if we use EOP?

I would, unless the other service has a list of active users itself.
