Specify a Spam Quarantine Mailbox

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can use the Shell to specify a spam quarantine mailbox for content filtering. If the spam confidence level (SCL) quarantine threshold is enabled, all messages that are quarantined are wrapped as non-delivery reports (NDR) and are sent to the SMTP address that you specify as the spam quarantine mailbox. You can then review quarantined messages and, as appropriate, release them to their intended recipients by using the Send Again feature in Microsoft Office Outlook. For more information, see Release Quarantined Messages from the Spam Quarantine Mailbox.

By the nature of the feature, the person responsible for the spam quarantine mailbox can view potentially private and sensitive messages, and then send mail on behalf of anybody in the Exchange organization.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Anti-spam features" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

You can't use the EMC to specify a spam quarantine mailbox.

Specify a spam quarantine mailbox by using the following command syntax.

Set-ContentFilterConfig -QuarantineMailbox <SmtpAddress>

This example sends all messages that exceed the spam quarantine to spamQ@contoso.com.

Set-ContentFilterConfig -QuarantineMailbox spamQ@contoso.com

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-ContentFilterConfig.
