1) Load up the latest security patches for Windows, IIS, and Exchange
2) Put a modern and properly configured firewall up in-front of Exchange
3) (open relay stuff)
4) Decided on an anti-malware system for email traffic. Some more that
come to mind: Fortinet (Fortigate Series), Barracuda Spam firewall,
Sophos, F-Secure, TrendMicro, Postfix on FreeBSD (as email firewall),
5) Test, test, and more testing:
