How to remove ESMTP verbs in Exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use a SPAM blocker built into Total Traffic Control.  The SPAM Blocker fails to catch email arriving via the ESMTP protocol.  I was advised that I could "turn off" certain ESMTP verbs or remove ESMTP entirely.  I have searched on-line for directions to remove ESMTP verbs from Exchange 2007.  The article I found that looked best advised using ADSIEdit to change some configuration settings.  When I ran ADSIEdit I could not find a "Configuration" container.  Am I heading in the right direction?  Can someone provide detailed instruction in how to remove ESMTP and/or some of it's verbs?

  • I'm not quite sure what you mean by the ESMTP protocol. Does the Total Traffic Control thing say what verbs cause it to fail? Most stuff here can be turned on and off on a per Receive Connector basis with Set-ReceiveConnector. Plug Set-ReceiveConnector in to Google and read the cmdlet docs, specifically look at all the different parameters and see if you can disable the specific verb which is giving you issues.

    My suggestion though is to get a new spam filter or use what's built in to Exchange.

  • Hi,

    In the ADSI Edit tool, you could see there have three container: Domain, Configuration, Schema.

    Then expand Configuration, expand CN=Configuration,DC=domain,DC=com, expand Services, expand CN=Microsoft Exchange, expand CN= <Your Organization>, expand CN=Administrative Groups, expand CN=<Your Administrative Group>, expand CN=Servers, expand CN=<Your Exchange server>, expand CN=Protocols, expand CN=SMTP, locate the SMTP number.

    Additionally, you can set the corresponding Verbs of the ESMTP to false on the Receive Connector based on the Brian's suggestions.
