View Quarantined E Mail on SBS 2011

Hi, where can I view the spam E Mail that exchange blocks ? I would also like to change the configuration of the spam filters.

Thanks, Peter.

By default, nothing is quarantined.
The settings are all in EMC, under Org Config, Hub Transport. There should be an anti-spam tab.

To create a mailbox to catch the quarantined content, follow this TechNet article:

Hi, thanks for quick response. This looks like it just covers the content filtering option and not the others, ie IP Block List, Sender ID etc ?

open Exchange Management Console / expand Organizational Configuration / Hub Transport / anti-spam

I would also like to change the configuration of the spam filters.
which ones would you like to change?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Right click on 'Content Filtering' go to 'Actions' tab you can check 'Quarantine messages with SCL ratings greater than or equal to:' place your email here or one that you want to use to check SPAM. From this email account you can resend if it's a false positive.

Hi, they are all enabled apart from content filtering as that was blocking too many. Can I forward the other ones to an E Mail account ?

No only the content filtering.

You may want to enable content filtering and watch the email account associated with it until you get the false positives (SCL) configured correctly. Note you can resend to the users if something comes in the queue.

Or go with a 3rd party spam filter.
