    Lightbulb Good FREE SPAM Filter for Exchange 2010

    Hi guys,

    We have just installed a new network at our school and we now have a virtual Exchange 2010 server which is up and running but we are being ridiculed with SPAM emails. I have recieved in excess of 100 over one weekend to my personal mailbox alone.

    Can you guys recommend me a decent FREE SPAM FILTER which is easy to use and setup? Until recently on our old exchange i was using a program called Vamsoft Enterprise Edition which stopped SPAM to users mailboxes but meant i have to sivve through thousands of SPAM emails a day to ensure there were no false positives as all it did was redirect them to a specified mailbox.

    Hoping to implement a better system on our new exchange following recommendation by you guys.

    All suggestions welcome, thanks in advance!

    Do you have EEES licensing? If so you can get ForeFront for free.

    Easy to install and easy to use. You want ForeFront for Exchange server.

    Excellent. I'll have a look when im in the office tomorrow Thank-you.

    How does it work? Does it allow me to go in and retrieve false positives etc?

    Sounds ideal. I just watched a video on youtube and looks simple enough. All i need to do is put our blacklist / whitelist into a text file and i should be able to import it all over to Forefront. I'll let you know how I get on and thanks again!

    You can also use the Connection Filter Agent along with various DNS Blacklists.

    Or use the built in anti-spam agents on the HUB, just install them. However, if you can get Forefront for Exchange, then I would go for that. Other things you may want to consider is setting up SPF records for your smtp domain to reduce spoofing from your domain and reduce the likeness of your domain being blocked/blacklisted.

    Also the old school method of having a front end relay running Linux + Postfix + SpamAssassin is still valid.

    It would seem ForeFront only supports 32bit O/S, we have 64bit

    Your looking at the wrong thing then, Forefront for Exchange is 64bit.

    Edit: Your want this "Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server" I believe

    These are what i can find, I have tried the one circled in red as well as 10.0. Both say 'does not support 64bit' when i try and install.

    That's a little confusing. I thought Exchange 2010 was only 64bit?
