Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange (FPE) Anti-Spam


About This Video
Alexander Nikolayev, program manager for FPE, walks us through how all of the anti-spam features work, including the new functionality with FPE over the previous version.  After a couple minutes we dive right into the whiteboard walking through the mail flow anti-spam features with connection, protocol, and content filtering.

Since this is a longer interview, here’s how it breaks down.  Markers are the round circles in the Silverlight player progress bar.

[5:20 / Marker 1] - How the DNS Block list (DNSBL) feature works, exceptions of when it doesn’t apply, how you know a message was blocked by DNSBL,  areas where our DNSBL is better than competitors’ solutions.

[13:47 / Marker 2] – How SMTP filtering works

[19:00 / Marker 3] – How Sender ID filtering works

[21:32 / Marker 4] –  Cloudmark engine (content filtering) and performance results with MSIT, frequency of updates with engine, how it is different than competitors’ solutions.

[27:04 / Marker 5] – Estimated Percentage of Spam which is blocked at what spot in the Anti-spam mail flow process based on MSIT deployment of FPE (not including FOPE)

[29:05 / Marker 6] – What is Backscatter and how does it work

[36:40 / Marker 7] – Final tips on backscatter, content filtering, DNSBL, SMTP and sender ID, SPAM and BACON.
