Friday, September 08, 2006 12:03 PMI have read several threads that mention to run the install-AntispanAgents.msh to install the "Edge" Components on a Hub role Server. The only question remaining: "How do I run that script??" Doubleclick won't do, and launching the Shell an typing "install-AntispamAgents" wont help either. Please help!!!

its a monad/powershell script using E2007 commands, you must startit within Exchange Management Shell

That's what I thought!
I start the Exhcange COmmand Shell, change to the C:\Programme\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Scripts folder and type "Install-AntispamAgents". I get a "Install-AntispamAgents is not recognized cmdlet,......"
What do I do wrong???

When you're in the scripts directory, run the command with the syntax:
The .\ tells the shell to look for the script to run in the current working directory.
Saturday, September 09, 2006 10:01 PMWhen you run this it installs everything but the attachment filter, is that correct? Are there plans to alter that in a later release?

No plans to alter that. Attachment filtering is more of a compliance agent then anti-spam (not a lot of spam comes in attachments).
Some organizations have different attachment filtering policies for internal mail versus internet, something that attach filter doesn't know to configure differently. The anti-spam agents know to recognize internal email and they do not filter internal email

Thanks, I understand that, but filtering attachments is an imprtant security issue which is my main concern. Sorry I was not clear.
As it is now we use an event to block mail with certain extensions. This will not port to 2007 and thus the question.

You can also use Forefront Security for Exchange to do attachment filtering. Forefront will filter both on the file name/extension, as well as true file type, so it will still block files where the extension name has been changed.
Forefront also will quarantine the blocked files if you want (quarantine option can be set per-rule) so you can inspect them and then deliver them to the user if they are valid.
