Enable or Disable Spam Filtering Settings in FOPE


Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-08-17

This topic applies only to customers using FOPE in a stand-alone environment, and not as part of the Microsoft Office 365 or Live@edu services. Microsoft Office 365 and Live@edu subscribers cannot configure the Spam filtering setting in the Domain Settings pane in the FOPE Administration Center.

Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) achieves enhanced accuracy with proprietary, multilayer spam technology that helps ensure unsolicited email is automatically filtered before it enters your corporate messaging systems. For more information, see Understanding Antispam Protection in the Filtering Service Features section.

Spam filtering settings include the following:

  • Enabled – inbound and outbound messages will be evaluated to identify messages that appear to be consistent with spam, and the configured settings will be applied.

  • Disabled – inbound messages will not be evaluated to identify messages that appear to be consistent with spam. Disabling spam filtering on the domain does not bypass the IP Edge Blocking, which is done by the Reputation Block Lists (RBLs), nor does it stop the outbound spam filtering if you are sending outbound messages through the Hosted Services network.
