Hi,

I have three questions on Exchange 5.5:
1) What is the use of X400 in Exchange 5.5
2) What is the use of CCMAIL
3) I blocked so many adult emails in message filtering but still my users are getting adult emails is there any way to block them is there any script which I run on my users pc and it stops all adult and other useless emails.
I would appreciate if someone could assist me on this.
Thanks and Regards.
Anurag.

Answers:

Question 1:

To connection to foreign mail systems ie Internet Mail servers.

Question 2:

CCMail has no use anymore! It was repalced by Lotus Notes. It was an old DOS based mail program out in the mid 90's.

Question 3:

You need a spam filter, either hardware of software. they range from low-cost to big dollars depending on the volume of mail your client is running.

1) X400 is used as connector for other mail server. other may be lotus mail or exchange server also. when we are troubleshooting scenario where we've multiple sites then we send mail using X400 address we can it one off addressing.

2) CCMAIL is a obsolute mail server used in the days of DOS and NOVELL

3) you need to this from server side only. if these mails are SPAM then you can use inbuilt feature of Exchange 2003. Also you can go for many third party tools like sybari or symantec mail security, there are also many antispam filter appliances available they can alsi work as smarthost for your outgoing mails

The others answered your first two questions. As for the spam, it sounds like you might be new to this whole email admin thing, so I would suggest outsourcing the spam filtering to a third party, makes life sooooo much easier. There are dozens of companies out there who will filter your email for spam and viruses, just do a google search. App River does it for around $50 for 50 email acocunts as an example

we recently started using the Postini service and it is excellent. Nary a support call when we rolled it out to 3000 users.

They do have a setup for SMB's that is quite inexpensive. And the setup is quite straightforward.
