Getting the Exchange 2010 SPAM filter to work

We have a windows 2012 server which is running exchange 2010.

We are having trouble with loads of SPAM hitting our users mailbox.

We enabled the Microsoft SPAM filter, but have not managed to find out how to update this. In addition, we have not made any changes to the default configuration.

We are still receiving loads of spam, as the work we have doen so far has not made any difference at all.

I have increased the SCL settings to make it more aggressive, but this has not helped either.

How can we get the built in SPAM filter to work for us. How can we update it, and are there any changes that are needed to the default installation to make it work.

I cant see that it is doing anything, but just dont know how to check it.

Am I wasting my time with this, and would we be better of using Vamsoft ORF or something similar?

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.
