I am still not clear to the SCL settings. Which side of the scale does
more email get through IMF?

You can't get there from here.
There is no way to keep messages from getting high SCL ratings.  If you
pemit SCL-based filtering, all mail coming into Exchange from SMTP
sources within your network will be subject to it just the same as mail
of external origin.  The only whitelisting provision for SCL ratings is
based on subject and/or body content.  AND THAT WHITELISTING FEATURE IS
BROKEN AND THERE IS NO HOTFIX.  (the whitelisting feature is explained
in the SP2 release notes).
The inability to whitelist at the SCL level based on IP is a major
omission in IMF, IMHO.  You might check with these guys to see if their
IMF tweaker works with IMF V2.

My current configuration for IMF is the following:


Under ESM -> Global Settings -> Message Delivery


1.      I have added the IP address of my Exchange/SMTP server under the
General TAB 
2.      Under IMF TAB Gateway is 4 with reject on, and Junk-Email is 2 
3.      Under Connection Filter TAB - Under Global Accept and Deny List
Configuration -> Under Accept are the IP address for ExchangeList,
ISAList, SBSList, etc. 
4.      Under SMTP server only the IMF filter is turned on everything is
turned off. 


I can't figure out for the life of me why IMF is still putting ISAList
emails in my Junk E-Mail folder after I added the IP to the Accept list
and restarted SMTP server??
