Exchange 2003 sp2 comes with an updated intelligent message filter. One of the new features of the updated IMF is the ability to add a custom weighting file that gives administrators more control over incoming mail.
I have used this file a few times on customers systems, usually to allow certain automated e-mails through the IMF which were being incorrectly identified as spam.
The problem is that Microsoft have not included a GUI to edit the MSExchange.UceContentFilter.xml file. ?Ǭ�So it must be generated by hand, and while this isn’t difficult, it is not very convenient and it is easy to make a mistake.
I was looking for an excuse to have a play with Visual Basic 2005 and so I have made a little utility to make creating and managing the MSExchange.UceContentFilter.xml a little easier.
The utility can be downloaded from here.(Requires .net 2.0).
If you need more information on how to implement the custom weighting feature then see:
