I have set up a Linux spam gateway in front of my Exchange 2003 server. It is very efficient and marks spam email by tagging the subject line as “spam.” After the email is tagged, it is sent to the Exchange 2003 server.
I would like all email tagged as spam to be automatically sent to the clients’ Junk folders Microsoft Outlook 2003.
I have used the Exchange Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) and created a Spam Confidence Level (SCL) rule that adds an SCL ranking of 5 to each message that has the word “spam” in the subject line. I set the "move to archive" as 9, and "move to Junk" as 5 in the IMF settings. Additionally, I configured Microsoft Outlook to show me the SCL values so that I can track what’s going on.
The “move to Junk folder” rule worked just fine. However, if an email has an SCL ranking higher than 9 it gets archived. I want it to go to the Junk folder instead. How can I do this? Would it work if I changed the gateway setting of the Exchange IMF to "No Action?”
Is there a script that will allow me to insert such a rule into the Microsoft Outlook client as an ordinary "rules and alerts" rule?
I simply want email tagged as spam to forward to the Junk folder without losing any email, even junk email. I have 50 PCs and have no problem manually inserting that rule into each PC’s Outlook 2003.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
