There is an extremely high possibility that this edition of the TechNet Flash was delivered to your inbox by a server using Exchange. There is also an extremely high possibility that you also received a few Spam emails and some loaded with malicious content. The very first task I was given as an IT Pro was to implement a Spam filter at the company I was working for. While it wasn’t the most difficult task I was given, at times managing it was the most time intensive. Oh how things have changed...

I’ve been using Microsoft Forefront Online Security for Exchange, to help protect the mailboxes at thelazyadmin.com for about two months now and where I used to spend about an hour a week managing the filters I now spend no time. In fact it took less time to configure Forefront Online Security for Exchange then it did to uninstall the old filter I was using, simply had to repoint my MX records. No hardware to build, software to configure or manuals to read (because we all read the manuals right ;). Best part is you can try it yourself for 30 days at no cost.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
