Anti-spam quarantine for each user?

    Question

  • Good morning, all!

    I'm working on setting up anti-spam quarantine in a new on-premise Exchange 2013.  One of the requirements is that each user is able to see only their own mail in quarantine.  Is this possible or is the quarantine process only supported for a single manager who can see all mail in the organization?

    I thought perhaps setting up multiple quarantines might do, but I can't see where to instruct the content filters to deliver to multiple mailboxes - the cmdlet seems to only take one variable as the smtp address.

    The only other things I can see are to disable Content Filtering and let the Outlook Junk Mail filters handle it, or to look into third-party anti-spam applications.

    Am I on target with the assessment that the requirement of each user only able to see their own messages is not feasible with only Exchange Edge Transport Content Filtering?  If so, any recommendations on alternatives would be appreciated; it's been a while since I've played in this particular sandbox!

    Thanks to all for looking!

  • Yea, something like:

    Set-SenderIdConfig -Enabled $false
    Set-ContentFilterConfig -Enabled $false

    Set-SenderReputationConfig -Enabled $false

    Be careful disabling recpient and sender configs like

    Set-RecipientFilterConfig if you are also using that to do recipient filtering and not anti-spam per se...

  • You would really need to look at 3rd party anti-spam solutions for on-prem or better yet, ship that piece to the cloud using something like EOP.

  • Hello, Andy!

    Thanks for looking into this.  I'm trying to sell management on a third-party solution that would meet this need.  As for EOP, that's probably not going to be an option for us. 

    Meanwhile, I need to be sure of what gets blocked without any false positives.  Would I need to disable all the Edge Transport anti-spam services, or would disabling only Content Filtering and Sender/Recipient filtering do?

    Thanks!

  • You cannot do it in exchange 2013. Only administrators can see quarantine emails in Web Control Panel and able to release them. Also can check the header of such emails. You try GFI which is sending quarantine report to users.
