SBS2011 and Exchange 2010.
I've configured the spam filter to redirect all suspect email to a Quarantine mail box on the Exchange server. Only problem is it's a bit over zealous on outgoing email and a lot a perfectly valid emails get sent off to Quarantine.
How can I tone it down a bit for outgoing mail or even turn it off for outgoing mail altogether?

Outbound email?
With the built in Exchange filter?
As far as I am aware it doesn't filter outbound email. I have certainly never seen it block or drop outbound email.

Are you sure this is the native filter and not a third party or Forefront.

I've worked out what the problem is.
In EMC, Organisation Configuration--> Hub Transport-->Transport Rules.
I'd setup a rule that blocked attachments by type. By default this applies to incoming AND outgoing mail. So any email that has one of the attachment types is sent to the quarantine account I set up.
I've amended the rule so that it only blocks incoming attachments and not outgoing.

Worked out it was a mail attachment rule that was the cause of the problem
