We all know that spam is an ever-growing problem that causes companies around the world to lose enormous amounts of money each year.

Outlook includes a much improved junk e-mail filter based on Microsoft’s SmartScreen technology, which we describe in this Appendix. We will also have a look at the Safe Senders, Safe Recipients, and Blocked Senders lists, which are very similar to the ones found in Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2003 Then we will move on to the Exchange 2003 features, which include IP filtering, sender filtering, and real-time black list (RBL) support. To finish the Appendix, we will take a look at Microsoft’s upcoming Exchange 2003 SmartScreen-based Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) technology, which is an Exchange 2003 add-on that will improve Exchange’s quite built-in antispam features.
