Exercise 1 - Enabling and Configuring Antispam and Antimalware Functionality

As an administrator, you need to protect the mailbox servers from unwanted or malicious emails. The protection of mailbox servers should be a priority task for Exchange Server administrators. There is no single tool or application that can block all the harmful emails. However, there are antispam agents such as Content Filter agent and Sender Filter agent in Exchange Server that provide antispam protection for the mailboxes.

Malware such as viruses and spyware can cause considerable damage to mailbox servers. Therefore, like antispam protection, antimalware protection is also very important for mailboxes. The Transport agent named Malware Agent provides antimalware protection in Exchange Server. The agent scrutinizes the messages directed towards the mailbox servers.

In this exercise, you will learn how to enable and configure antispam and antimalware functionality on a mailbox server by performing the following tasks:

  • Task 1 - Enable antispam functionality on the mailbox server
  • Task 2 - Configure content filtering
  • Task 3 - Configure sender filtering
  • Task 4 - Enable and configure antimalware protection
  • Task 5 - Create and edit antimalware policy
  • Task 6 - Manage antimalware policy
