forefront exchange 2010 on an EDGE server


  • Hi people,

    I hope you can help, i am experiencing some false positives with cloudmark from gmail mainly which is put into quarantine. Now the only answer i see with cloudmark issues is to report them to microsoft, but is there some way i can let forefront bypass mail from

    I tried it with a filter list bypassing from sender domains but it doesn't seem to work.

    the way i did it was at filter details i put in:


    A the next page it says TARGET:

    and at hub/edge transport scan i chose

    enabled :yes

    action: skip detect

    quarantine files : no

    notifactions: never send notifications

    Could anybody tell me if this is correct or should i do smth else?

    kind regards

  • Hi,

    a filterrule is the wrong place to whitelist the domain because they are processed later. You have to put the domains in the safelist of the contentfiler.

    Check the follwoing article how to configure the whitelist for the contentfilter: (Allowing e-mail from specific senders and sender domains to by-pass spam filtering)

  • thanks a lot, is there anything else you would recommend as in it might not be the most ideal to just let on the allow list, what would you recommend? This or another way?

  • Hi,

    I don't see another way other than to whitelist the senders or submit samples to Microsoft. One thing could be to whitelist only the senders but this is is a very frustating job in my eyes :-)
