Subject: [exchangelist] Intellegent Message Filter question



I am running Exchange 2003 and using the Intellegent Message Filter
(IMF). I have this installed elsewhere without issue. At two new sites
however, the IMF does not seem to be detecting any messages.


I have set it to take No Action (so that I can monitor it and set the
appropraite levels). I have set both the Gateway and Junk threshholds to
1 (that is, monitor all traffic). The checkbox for that SMTP virtual
server is checked. However when I launch Perfmon and add counters for
each level of "Total Messages Assigned an SCL Rating of X", nothing
registers. I know that mail is coming in.


Any ideas why I'm not seeing anthing here?
