For ex2003 you are better off using a 3rd party for Spam. A great service I have used before is spamstopshere.

http://www.spamstopshere.com

They are very cheap per mailbox and pretty much stop your spam issues.

There is no such thing as a spam quarantine mailbox in Exchange 2003.

You can quarantine the messages, but then to view the quarantine you need to look at the actual messages themselves. They cannot be delivered to a mailbox - that is a function of later versions of Exchange.

IMF Tune can give you some of the functionality back, but it is a third party product:

Exchange 2003 native spam filtering simply isn't up to the job these days, so if you want more control you are looking at third party tools.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Sorry, but this just won't work in Exchange 2003. You will need to use a third party product.

Trying to do anything with rules etc in a mailbox for dealing with spam isn't going to work.
Spammers constantly change everything about the email that you could create a rule on, so you would be constantly updating it.
There are no easy fixes for spam issues, you need a proper spam product on the Exchange server, or subscribe to a filtering service to block the messages.
