Spam Filter - cannot enable updates.

    Question

  • Hello...

    I am having a very interesting problem that I have not been able to solve with typical internet searches.

    The History:

    I had a catastrophic failure of my only Exchange 2010 Server this week.  The only way to recover was to build a new server and to delete all references to the old server and the Database with ADSI Edit.  The problem was caused by applying SP2 and having powershell scripts restricted as a domain policy.  The exchange sp2 readiness check does not check to see if the policy allows ps1 scripts to run.  So 3/4 thru the update.  BLAM!  All gone.  Now I'm back up and running with my mew server but Anti-Spam is not working properly. so if anyone needs any male enhancement meds.. I can send you lots of details.  :)

    Spam filtering works... sort of.  BUT... I can't enable updates.  The option does not even exist in the EMC on the right pane.  I can see the Anti-spam tabs but nothing allows me to set the updates.  Get-antispamupdates command in PS does not exist.

    I ran the install scripts and i see the Filters in the EMC.  It even pulled the settings form AD.  I've even run the un-install scripts and attempted to re-install with no avail.  I've checked remote registry service and file and print status as some sites suggested.  Nothing works.

    I checked the InternalSMTPTransport setting as described in:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb201691.aspx

    Has anyone run into this? I'm totally stumped.

    Chris

  • Zi,

    Thank you for the response.

    ... So after playing around for some time and making no progress, i decided to investigate Forefront.

    I ran setup again and clicked the forefront link in the splash screen.  It re-directed me to the web for the download.  But something else stood out.  There was another link on the splash which I neglected to click.  "Get Critical Updates".  After clicking that, it again re-directed me to the web and this time to windows update online. I just assumed that windows update would cover this step.

    After that the updates worked.  I had spamfilter updates, silver light updates, and office filter pack updates.  I didn't have them earlier when I ran windows update.

    So my question is... Exactly what does this enable to allow windows update to see the updates for exchange?

  • Hi Chris

    In Exchange server 2010 SP1, the cmlet  “Enable-Antispamupdates” and “Get-Antispamupdates” have been removed.

    For more information, please refer to the following Exchange Team Blog.

  • Hi

    I think it depends, cause some Exchange update have prerequest, they are included in Windows Update. So dont worry about that, always keep the latest.

  • I have three addresses coming into my yahoo account from my own domain, I also have my sbcglobal mail coming into my yahoo account. The spam filter doesn't seem to be working on those addresses.
