Exchange Content Filtering
My organization uses Connection Filtering as well as Content Filtering with Exchange 2007 SP3 as a part of our Anti Spam strategy. We are struggling with a few important external email servers that send us enough spam to get placed on our IP Block List, or send enough spam to get on Internet-based block lists to which we subscribe. Unfortunately, these few servers represent very important partners of ours and the blocking that is occurring has a tremendous negative impact on the legitimate email that we need to receive from those servers.

Can we bypass Connection Filtering for a given IP Server, but still enforce Content Filtering? If so, is this advisable in solving our delimma?



Software/Hardware used:
Exchange 2007 (about to upgrade to 2010)

    Thanks. To clarify, what we are seeking to do is prevent certain domains from being blocked by Connection Filtering, but still enforce Content Filtering. Currently in Exchange, if we put the domains in the IP Allow list, then we bypass Connection Filtering AND Content Filtering. Since the domains do send spam, we wish to continue to filter individual emails from the domains, but prevent them from being blocked unilaterally by Connection Filtering.
