Exchange2003 - How to allow a specific sender while the domain has been block from "sender filtering" RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Exchange 2003 SP2 Ent server. And we have blocked a specific domain by adding it on Global Settings - Message Delivery - Sender filtering *@abc.com. It has been set for over a few years and until recently one of our user voice out that she can't receive a legitimate mail with 123@abc.com. Since there are lots of junk and malicious mail from abc.com, our manager is not willing to remove that domain from sender filtering. How can I exclude that specific address from sender filtering?

    I've try on "Connection filtering -Configure an exception list to the block list service rule" to exclude that RECEIPIENT (To allow the user to receive every mail, buts seems only work for the mail blocked by "block list service" )

    Is there any method to allow that user to receive the specific email address?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Domain or email address based exception is a function not available by default in Exchange Server 2003. Such a possibility may be available in non-Microsoft applications for Exchange Server 2003 and has been incorporated in Exchange Server 2007 and 2010.
