Symantec Spam Folder Agent for Exchange

An application designed to work on Microsoft Exchange Servers. Installed separately, the Symantec Spam Folder Agent for Exchange creates a subfolder and a server-side filter in each user’s mailbox. The filter gets applied to messages that a Scanner identifies as spam, routing spam into each user’s spam folder, relieving end users and administrators of the burden of using their mail clients to create filters.
