    - I would suggest ALWAYS view the header information and find a pattern.  Usually it's tuff since SPAM changes on a daily basis.  Next, You want to either create a Rejected Filter or a SUBJECT Filter of this sort of email

    - Make sure that SpamCure engine is updating every 15 minutes only

  • Also, using RBL servers will help.  If you are running Exchange Server 2003, consider also using IMF.

  • We disabled RBL servers per Antigen Support for the 2 main reasons:
    1. RBLs are handled by external 3rd party vendors which Microsoft cannot control
    2. There have been times where RBLS have cancelled their detection site unexpectedly which causes emails to queue

    And IMF is not Cluster aware and we don't have any bridgehead servers implemented even though I have produced many documents outlining the importance for Bridghead servers.
