Hi expert,

I'm trying to enable exchange 2016 antispam, when i run cmdlet get-transportagent, below are the result, however there's spam email coming in to my mailbox..

Identity                                           Enabled         Priority
--------                                           -------         --------
Transport Rule Agent                               True            1
DLP Policy Agent                                   True            2
Retention Policy Agent                             True            3
Supervisory Review Agent                           True            4
Malware Agent                                      True            5
Text Messaging Routing Agent                       True            6
Text Messaging Delivery Agent                      True            7
System Probe Drop Smtp Agent                       True            8
System Probe Drop Routing Agent                    True            9
Content Filter Agent                               True            10
Sender Id Agent                                    True            11
Sender Filter Agent                                True            12
Recipient Filter Agent                             True            13
Protocol Analysis Agent                            True            14

When i run cmdlet get-contentfilterconfig | fl enabled, the result show FALSE
Does this mean i must get contentfilter agent to be activated, only the spam email will be rejected automatically?

Thanks.

Hi CY,
The Exchange builtin antispam is not a powerful antispam engine.
To have a it filtered you need a 3rd party antispam.

Hi Mas,

I understand that exchange builtin antispam is not a powerful antispam engine, however our management like to test the feature out.

Can advise how to make it work?
