I have a problem with some exchange servers 2010.
I have an external anti spam filter (online) to point my MX Record.

When an email come to the antispam filter. Every mail was tagged [spam] in the object email but it's the exchange server who tagg [spam] not our antispam filter.
If I disable all option's antispam in exchange manager.. I have always [spam] in object..
But if I point my MX directly to my exchange server, the mail come correctly to the mailbox without [spam].

Some people have an idea to resolve this problem.

For informations all work fine before last week.

Many thanks.

If you are already using an external spam filter, then why are using installing antispam on the exchange server which is double filtering the emails.

It's not required. Set the outbound emails to also use smarthost.

I've disable agent spamfilter with powershell commande but i have always [spam] in object's email. Do I must reboot server ?

Many thanks for your help.
