Exchange 2007 : Antispamupdates RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I try to configure antispamupdates on our exchange 2007 (SBS 2008).
    We are not using the (paid version) of Forefront security.

    when requesting the status, I get :

    UpdateMode                  : Automatic
    LatestContentFilterVersion  : 3.3.16505.861
    SpamSignatureUpdatesEnabled : True
    LatestSpamSignatureVersion  : 3.3.4604.600
    IPReputationUpdatesEnabled  : True
    LatestIPReputationVersion   : 3.3.16507.021
    MicrosoftUpdate             : Configured

    However the Spamsignatureversion seems off : 3.3.4604.600.

    This is a version that I can find many times in google, but I do not understand why it is not updating. Doesn't look like a recent version.

    Can anyone please advise?

  • Hi Thomas,

    I mean you need to check if the antispam updates is enabled firstly: Go into Exchange->Server Configuration->Hub Transport->Antispam tab->Right hand side - click enable antispam updates

    Please see:

    Updates are delivered via Windows Updates and should be visible - be sure to click via 'Check online for updates from Microsoft Update'.

    You can also try to update manually to see if it works.
