    @ICTNUT

    Thanks for that. I never realised that Exchange could handle RBLs out of the box. I'll forward that on to the relevant people, and await the standard response of "It's too expensive (and yes, they will try that with free stuff!)" or "It can't be done on this system."

    God I love Fujitsu, honest!

    Re: AntiSpam solutions

    Hi,

    How about using the IMF (intelligent message filter) that you can use on exchange 2003? i'm not too sure if this is sold seperately or is available for download.

    Ashok.

    Thanks ashok - I'll pass that onto Fujitsu. By the looks of it, this is the Exchange implementation of Outlook's existing Just E-mail filters, which have always worked pretty reliably for me.

    Re: AntiSpam solutions

    Ok, it's time to resurrect a dead thread.. :P

    I'm still trying to get a solution to the wonders of spam on our network, and I know now that other schools in the area are having the same battle with our managed service provider. Here are the criteria for our antispam solution:

    1. It has to be free
    2. It has to integrate into our existing Exchange 2003 setup (which makes SP2 a good candidate for the solution).
    3. It definitely has to be free!
    4. We can't use a linux box.

    So... I am currently researching the Intelligent Message Filter for Exchange 2k3 and would like to know if anyone is running it, and how successful it actually is. I know it's based on the same technology as the spam filter in Outlook 2k3 which I have had quite a bit of success with, but how well does that technology scale up to mailserver level? And how easy is it to administer?

    @RobC: I am running IMF (dead easy to set up!) and I've noticed that a couple of people have had stuff sent into a Junk folder. I've also noticed that we don't get much dross so...

    Excellent. I was rather hoping someone would give a good response about IMF.

    Re: AntiSpam solutions

    We use the IMF at work with Sophos Puremessave AV & AS, the IMF works a treat, you are best following the MSFT guidance for setting it up as its "test" period for what levels to set are good, and worked well. For the moving to Junk options, you must ensure that your clients are set to work in Cached Mode on the clients (ours were not as most of the Outlook users are back from Exchange 5.5 days) But its very good and works well. I do find its not perfect - blocks e-mails from big companies that I need like Support Information from Sophos, and has been known to be "selective" at letting quotes through, mine did not like Dell or Fujitsu, but liked CCL and RM.

    Also to confirm Exchange 2003 CALS do include a licence for Outlook 2003, although in 98% of our users, they use the web access or in a very small select location they use Exchange 5.5 client!!!!!!
