How to set White & Black Lists on Exchange Server
« on: June 26, 2013, 07:37:10 PM »
Good morning Avast Gurus.  I have Avast 7.0.1xxx running on every PC on my network and it is doing great but I have a question about where does the "*** SPAM *** subject line addition get set?  My PCs are predominately Windows 7 and Exchange Server is 2008R2.

On my Exchange Server how do I create a White List so certain users who's job it is to send out company wide announcements don't get their email tagged with the "*** SPAM ***"?

And since I am asking about White Lists on Exchange Server 2008R2 is there a way to create a Black List?

Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing the answer....... :)

Okay here is how to set Black & White lists on Exchange Server (server version installed not client)

Start Avast 7.X on Exchange Server 2008R2
Click Additional Protection
Click Antispam
Click Expert Settings and enter the password

Now here is where I am learning by trial and error.  On my Exchange Server the following had a checkbox already checked.
1. Mark in subject of spam message ***SPAM***
2. Delete spam messages (warning there is no way to restore such messages later)
3. Add recipients of outbound emails to whitelist automatically
4. Add only domains of the recipients

I unchecked 2 through 4 but number 4 came back in a greyed out form when I went back in later.

Now click on Whitelist and in here I added the two employees email addresses who regularly send out company announcements.  Before I did the above steps in Main Settings and but after I added the email addresses I noticed I had 15 domains in my Whitelist.  So now I modified the Main Settings to the aforementioned configuration and I will chime back in tomorrow and let you know how things are working out.

Che at avast! had me use Endpoint Protection Suite Plus and the AEA console, to manage the mail servers.

I like #3: Add recipients of outbound emails to whitelist automatically.

I also like "add contacts to whitelist"

and "Add only domains of the recipients" is a horrible setting, then every jack, dick, and harry get whitelisted, if you reply to JR@gamail.com, or ANY of the free email hosts!
