  • Message Filtering

    Hey all,

    Just had my first experience with Exchange 2007 this week. I have to say I am not generally impressed, the power shell is great for advanced configuration but there are some this which could have gone into the GUI......

    That aside, I am correct in saying that there is NO filtering available in a singe server environment?!? Even something as simple as content filtering requires a seperate server?

    If I am wrong (and I hope I am), please tell me where I can get specific instructions on message filtering in a single server environment.

        Open the Exchange Management Shell

        Change to the scripts directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Scripts)
        Tip: right click on the icon for the Management Shell and encapsulate the shells direcory path as the Start in: folder and it will always start there

        Run install-AntispamAgents.ps1

        Start the Exchange Management Console and navigate to Orginization Configuration > Hub Transport and you will now see the Ant-Span tab

        If you're moving from 2003, use the Exchange 2007 Anti Spam Migration Tool to export your existing settings.

        Note: There is no longer two levels of handling for the Content Filter (formerly IMF) and the quarantine no longer goes to file but instead delivers to a defined admin box.

          If you are setting up a single Exchange server then you should probably look at this posting on the msexchangeteam site:
          It covers most of the things for a single server setup.
