Set up Exchange anti-spam features

Move anti-spam settings from one server to another with the Exchange 2007 Anti Spam Migration tool, from Microsoft www.microsoft.com/do.. Run it on the SBS 2003 system to create a PowerShell script that you can run on your Exchange 2007 server to import the appropriate settings.

Copy the file across to the new server. If you’re using Exchange 2007 in a standalone mode, the built-in anti-spam tools won’t be installed on the Hub Transport. In the Exchange Management Shell type the following command to turn these features on:

install-AntispamAgents.ps1

You can now run the migration script to implement your existing anti-spam policy. Exchange 2007 has renamed the Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) to the Content Filter, and this runs alongside other anti-spam tools.

One big change is the implementation of a spam quarantine mailbox. Create an appropriately named new user and add a mailbox to Exchange 2007. Configure the Content Filter to use this address, and spam messages will be delivered to this mailbox. You can log onto this account at regular intervals to delete spam and resend legitimate messages that triggered the anti-spam defences.

Exchange 2007 helps reduce the amount of spam your users get with support for content filtering and Internet IP block lists like Spamhaus and SpamCop.

IT EXPERT TOP TIP

If you're supporting en users who need to transfer files by FTP occasionally, explaining how to use FTP every time can get frustrating. Map an FTP site as a custom network location and they can do it through the familiar Explorer window. If you only have a couple of machines you can choose Tools >Map Network Drive… in Explorer and click the link 'Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures' to open a wizard that creates a network location. Select 'Choose a custom network location', type in the FTP address and fill in the user name and password. You can also create mapped drives and network places on the Environment tab of the user's Active Directory object - but if you have a lot of users to set up, put it in the logon script for the user profile under Active Directory Users and Computers.
