Having received an annoyingly higher proportion of spam in my Inbox this morning, I wanted to quickly check what the antispam agents are doing. Here’s a quick cmdlet (besides the ones to check whether the antispam agents are enabled, checking the Content Filter SCL thresholds, etc.).
Get-AgentLog -StartDate “6/16/2008” | group action | ft name,count -Autosize
What you get back:
The filters are still working. Perhaps it’s one of those days when you wake up to high volume of spam.
Note to self: Create a quick monitoring script that provides more information from agent logs, antispam configs, and perfmon counters.
