  • Anti-Spam or Transport Rules

    I have a single exchange server configuration and have been using Transport Rules to block words like sex and penis and Viagra and stuff from our organization. Works well. I have heard that I can also add on by running a script the Anti-Sam Agent and get a new tab to show up in EMC.

    Do I really need to use both Transport Rules and Anti-Spam? Is one better than the other?

    Thanks,
    RC

    Transport rules are not really a good spam fighting measure. I don't think I have ever used them for that purpose.
    Furthermore, a lot of spam will hide the actual word in some way, so your rules are not going to work that well.

    You can use the anti-spam agents that are built in to Exchange and they are more effective than what you are using now. The additional tabs in EMC are Exchange 2010 and 2007 only.

    For most people though, a third party product or service is required to deal with spam.
