quick question. Can we set any emails that get rejeceted due to the built in spam filters to be forwarded to a specific mailbox so that we can review all junk mail - at the moment it just gets rejected and bounces back to the original sender .

Please advise

You need to setup a quarantine mailbox.
I suggest you create a special mailbox for it, ideally in its own database.

That only works for content filter.
Everything else should be rejected and sent back, otherwise you will be processing a lot of email you don't want. It is best practise to reject at the point of delivery and you should ensure that your NDRs clearly say why the message has been rejected.

another spin on this question - is this -

Can we easily configure any email marked with the *SPAM tag to be forwarded to the administrator on this version of Exchange?

You should be able to write a Transport rule that looks for that entry in the Subject line and then forwards it to another user. Although I would use another mailbox dedicated to the task.

The rules wizard in Exchange 2010 is very straight forward. Just go through it, choosing the option of specific text in the subject line.
