Set-ContentFilterConfig

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-12

Use the Set-ContentFilterConfig cmdlet to modify the content filter configuration on a Mailbox server or an Edge Transport server.

Set-ContentFilterConfig [-BypassedRecipients <MultiValuedProperty>] [-BypassedSenderDomains <MultiValuedProperty>] [-BypassedSenders <MultiValuedProperty>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Enabled <$true | $false>] [-ExternalMailEnabled <$true | $false>] [-InternalMailEnabled <$true | $false>] [-OutlookEmailPostmarkValidationEnabled <$true | $false>] [-QuarantineMailbox <SmtpAddress>] [-RejectionResponse <AsciiString>] [-SCLDeleteEnabled <$true | $false>] [-SCLDeleteThreshold <Int32>] [-SCLQuarantineEnabled <$true | $false>] [-SCLQuarantineThreshold <Int32>] [-SCLRejectEnabled <$true | $false>] [-SCLRejectThreshold <Int32>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example specifies the sender domain woodgrovebank.com as a bypassed domain. Messages received from that domain bypass the Content Filter agent.

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenderDomains woodgrovebank.com

This example makes the following modifications to the Content Filter agent configuration:

  • It enables and configures the SCL threshold functionalities that quarantine, reject, and delete messages to 5, 6, and 8 respectively.

  • It specifies SpamQuarantineMailbox@contoso.com as the spam quarantine mailbox.

  • It defines two users for whom the Content Filter won't process messages.

Set-ContentFilterConfig -SCLQuarantineEnabled $true -SCLRejectEnabled $true -SCLDeleteEnabled $true -SCLQuarantineThreshold 5 -SCLRejectThreshold 6 -SCLDeleteThreshold 8 -QuarantineMailbox SpamQuarantineMailbox@contoso.com -RejectionResponse "Message rejected due to content restrictions" -BypassedRecipients user1@contoso.com,user2@contoso.com

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Anti-spam features" entry in the Anti-Spam and Anti-Malware Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

BypassedRecipients

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The BypassedRecipients parameter specifies the SMTP address values of recipients in your organization. The Content Filter agent doesn't process any content filtering for messages bound to the addresses listed on this parameter. To enter multiple SMTP addresses, separate the addresses by using a comma, for example: recipient1@contoso.com,recipient2@contoso.com. The maximum number of recipients you can input is 100.

BypassedSenderDomains

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The BypassedSenderDomains parameter specifies domain name values of sending domains. The Content Filter agent doesn't process any content filtering for messages received from the domains listed on this parameter. To enter multiple domains, separate the addresses by using a comma, for example: contoso.com, example.com. A wildcard character (*) can be used to specify all subdomains, for example: *.contoso.com. The maximum number of domains you can input is 100.

BypassedSenders

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The BypassedSenders parameter specifies the SMTP address values of senders. The Content Filter agent doesn't process any content filtering for messages received from the addresses listed on this parameter. To enter multiple SMTP addresses, separate the addresses by using a comma, for example: sender1@contoso.com, sender2@example.com. The maximum number of SMTP addresses you can input is 100.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Enabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The Enabled parameter enables or disables the Content Filter agent on the computer on which you're running the command. Valid input for the Enabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $true.

ExternalMailEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The ExternalMailEnabled parameter specifies whether all messages from unauthenticated connections from sources external to your Exchange organization are passed through the Content Filter agent for processing. Valid input for the ExternalMailEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $true. When the ExternalMailEnabled parameter is set to $true, all messages from unauthenticated connections are passed through the Content Filter agent for processing.

InternalMailEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The InternalMailEnabled parameter specifies whether all messages from authenticated connections and from authoritative domains in your enterprise are passed through the Content Filter agent for processing. Valid input for the InternalMailEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $false. When the InternalMailEnabled parameter is set to $true, all messages from authenticated connections and from authoritative domains in your enterprise are passed through the Content Filter agent for processing.

OutlookEmailPostmarkValidationEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The OutlookEmailPostmarkValidationEnabled parameter specifies whether the Content Filter agent sends a computational puzzle to the sender's e-mail system for processing. Valid input for the OutlookEmailPostmarkValidationEnabled parameter is $true or $false. When the OutlookEmailPostmarkValidationEnabled parameter is set to $true, the Content Filter agent sends a computational puzzle to the sender's e-mail system for processing. The results of the puzzle validation are factored into the overall spam confidence level (SCL). This functionality is exposed to the Microsoft Outlook user as Office Outlook 2007 E-mail Postmark validation. The default setting is $false.

QuarantineMailbox

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpAddress

The QuarantineMailbox parameter specifies an SMTP address to be used as a spam quarantine mailbox. A spam quarantine mailbox is required when you set the SCLQuarantineEnabled parameter to $true. All messages that exceed the value set in the SCLQuarantineThreshold parameter are sent to the SMTP address that you set in this parameter.

RejectionResponse

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.AsciiString

The RejectionResponse parameter specifies the message body that you want delivered in the non-delivery report (NDR) to senders whose messages meet or exceed the SCLRejectThreshold value. The RejectionResponse parameter is required if you set the SCLRejectEnabled parameter to $true. The RejectionResponse parameter takes a string. Don't exceed 240 characters in the argument. When you pass an argument, you must enclose the RejectionResponse parameter in quotation marks (") if the phrase contains spaces, for example: "Message rejected". The default setting is Message rejected due to content restrictions.

SCLDeleteEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The SCLDeleteEnabled parameter specifies whether all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLDeleteThreshold parameter are deleted. Valid input for the SCLDeleteEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $false. When the SCLDeleteEnabled parameter is set to $true, all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLDeleteThreshold parameter are deleted.

SCLDeleteThreshold

Optional

System.Int32

The SCLDeleteThreshold parameter specifies an integer value from 1 through 9. This value represents the SCL rating that a particular message must exceed for the Content Filter agent to delete the message and not send an NDR. To enable this functionality, you must set the SCLDeleteEnabled parameter to $true. The default setting is 9.

SCLQuarantineEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The SCLQuarantineEnabled parameter specifies whether all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLQuarantineThreshold parameter are sent to the spam quarantine mailbox specified in the QuarantineMailbox parameter. Valid input for the SCLQuarantineEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $false. When the SCLQuarantineEnabled parameter is set to $true, all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLQuarantineThreshold parameter are sent to the spam quarantine mailbox specified in the QuarantineMailbox parameter.

SCLQuarantineThreshold

Optional

System.Int32

The SCLQuarantineThreshold parameter specifies an integer value from 1 through 9. This value represents the SCL rating that a particular message must exceed for the Content Filter agent to quarantine the message. To enable quarantine functionality, you must set the SCLQuarantineEnabled parameter to $true, and provide a valid SMTP address in the QuarantineMailbox parameter. The default setting is 9.

SCLRejectEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The SCLRejectEnabled parameter specifies whether all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLRejectThreshold parameter are rejected, and an NDR is sent to the sender. Valid input for the SCLRejectEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $false. When SCLRejectEnabled parameter is set to $true, all messages that exceed the value set in the SCLRejectThreshold parameter are rejected, and an NDR is sent to the sender.

SCLRejectThreshold

Optional

System.Int32

The SCLRejectThreshold parameter specifies an integer value from 1 through 9. This value represents the SCL rating that a particular message must exceed for the Content Filter agent to reject the message and send an NDR to the sender. To enable the delete functionality, you must set the SCLDeleteEnabled parameter to $true. Also, you can revise the default NDR message by editing the RejectionResponse parameter. The default setting is 9.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
