Exchange 2003 - Anti Spam Configuration

Exchange 2003 has some anti-spam functionality that can be implemented on

Recipient Filtering
Sender Filtering
Intelligent Message Filtering (SCL Rating)
Connection Filtering (RBL Black lists)

These need to be configured and enabled on the SMTP virtual server before

If you need to dump the existing SMTP queue as it is filled with spam -
rename the Queue directory found here
