I'm running an Exchange server at home on SBS and at the moment I'm signed up for the Microsoft AV/antimalware/spam filtering trial that installs with it. However, unless I'm missing something, I can't see a way to manage the spam filter myself: I'm on a couple of mailing lists that can sometimes generate 100 or so legit emails a day, not all of which are making it to my Exchange inbox. Can anyone recommend a third-party option that gives me power over whitelisting; or alternatively tell me how to do that with the MS One Care?
My other question is: I'm routing my outbound email through the smarthost provided by my ISP, Be, but it's not ideal - Be seems to have issues with its smtp server and I often find mail is delayed reaching its destination. Does anyone know of another smarthost I can use?
Thanks for the link, Peter, that looks promising. I'm using Exchange 07 on SBS 08. I found this click here on the excellent David Overton blog and I've done the tweak but so far (mind you, it's only been a couple of hours) nothing is showing up in the quarantine inbox, including the test email I sent to the mailing list.
I also have a server running SBS 2003 R2. For outbound emails, i use the services of authsmtp. click here
With regards to the SPAM, when I download my emails on Outlook 2007 on the laptop/desktop, I have SPAMFIGHTER and MS JUNK Filter do the work. I have a look in these span folders and unblock emails that have been passed on as spam
