Thanks for your help. I've added a few RBLs like SpamHaus and ORBL.

Seb, KB article #823866
(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;823866) has
info on how to configure Exchange 2003 to use RBLs.  You just have to
choose the RBL list (or lists) that you want to use.

Looks interesting. Spam Assassin was very hard to install and I'll think
I will removed it. How do you do the black hole list?

Why would you do both IMF and SA?  Those seem like overkill, since they
both do essentially the same thing.  There are those that would probably
argue SA is technically better, but that's a personal decision.  We're
running IMF, since it's easier to install and manage, IMHO, than SA.

 

You may also want to look into doing some blocking against a real-time
black hole list.  Exchange can do that, and SA as well, if you enable
it.  This would block some of your incoming spam before they get into
the content analysis phase.

 

Finally, I'll just point out that IMF is great, but if you want more
end-user control over things like white lists, and the ability for users
to create and view personal quarantines, you can take a look at a
product from my company, Sirana SpamCenter, which is an add-on to IMF.

Hi All

 

I'm running an Exchange 2003 for my small business (on a albeit low
budget) and it is working fine. I have setup IMF and Spam Assassin with
McAfee Group Shield 6. Does this seem adequate spam and virus
protection? Any suggestions on improvements?
