I must have been half a sleep when I read that Carl. My bad sorry.


Just to clarify we are talking about the Perimeter IP option under the
General Tab in Message Delivery?

Your message below was rated an SCL of 3 by my IMF.  I see most list
messages rated less than 5.


All things being equal, all IMF's should report the same SCL for a given
message.  So all things are NOT equal.


SCL rating is influenced by SPF results.  Have you properly configured
your Perimeter IP list and Internal IP Range?   As I told you in October


"Perimeter IP list/range are the IPs of machines delivering inbound mail
you which will not be checked for SenderID compliance.  You could also
of this as a "whitelist"."


Your internal networks, and the IP of any machines outside your network
which routinely forward or originate mail to your Exchange server,
should have their IP addresses listed there.


You can view SPF results for individual messages in Outlook:,289483,sid43_gci1144172,

I have been noticing that some of the [exchangelist] messages are
getting a SCL rating of 7 and 8 and are being archived (rejected),
however I am constantly getting emails from these OEM software pirates
that aren't being filtered at all. Odd...
