Brightmail Spam Folder Agent for Exchange

Creates a subfolder and a server-side filter in each user's mailbox on a Microsoft Exchange Server. The filter gets applied to messages that the Brightmail Scanner identifies as spam, routing spam into each users spam folder, relieving end users and administrators of the burden of using their mail clients to create filters. This agent is installed separately from the standard Brightmail installation.
