Since started on Ironport ESA 3 years ago, UCE handling has always be problematic (basically, UCE is never treated as spam).
I hope the new Unwanted Marketing Message Detection feature fixes that!

When will 7.01-010 be available for download?  I've tried from two different C-series running 7.0.0-702, and neither of them have found the 7.01 release.

It may take some time to propagate out but I'd expect it to be there very soon.
