A Content Filter would be the easiest but it is processed after the SBRS check.. Remember you can have a one content filter with multiple checks just make sure you use OR and not AND.

So if you want to make sure a specific email is not spammed check you would need to create a Message Filter (regX expression) but then every single inbound email would be checked againest this filter.

So the best way might be to create a whole new policy and place it before your normal or default policy. Have the policy only apply for sender = [email protected] You can turn off the spam check for this policy.

Just to be sure:

I need something similar for 2 specific sender-adresses from a domain

Should it work, If I create a new "Incoming Content Filter" and Add the following rule (using two single conditions with an OR and the Deliver-Action):

if (mail-from == "[email protected]$") OR (mail-from == "[email protected]$") { deliver(); }

Then I enable this new "Incoming Content Filter" for my default "Incoming Mail Policies".

How can I test it without asking the two "real" sender?
What do you exactly mean with "processed after the SBRS check"?

Something that has been quite useful to me is the overview of the email pipeline (kb answer ID 777).
