Filtering Spam Mail Using Forefront protection for Exchange

Recently we had a customer ask us to block all emails coming from a certain spam email address and block all the emails from that domain. So underneath I will show how to filter blocked recipients using Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server Administrator Console.

 
 

  • Firstly remote on to the edge server. Then open
     


 
 

  • Then navigate to policy management

     
     


  • Then on the tree pane expand the anti-spam option and then click on configure.

     
     


 
 

  • Then click on the “Configure Blocked Recipient List” action on the right hand pane and the following List should prompt.


 

 

 

  • If you are blocking a certain email address just click in one of blocks in the list and type the address which needs to be blocked for example “testuser@testdomain.com” and click apply at the top of the wizard.


  • If you wanted to block anyone from the domain sending emails then click on one of the blocks in the list and type “*testdomain.com” and then

    click Apply at the top of the wizard.


  • Then when you leave the list make sure you press the save button!

     
     

    Hope this helps.
