This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to enable or disable Sender ID functionality on the computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed.
By default, Sender ID is enabled on the Edge Transport server role for inbound messages that come from the Internet but are not authenticated. These messages are handled as external messages. You can disable Sender ID in individual computer configurations by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.
By default, the Sender ID agent is not enabled on the Hub Transport server. For more information about running the Sender ID agent on the Hub Transport server, see How to Enable Anti-Spam Functionality on a Hub Transport Server.
Before You Begin
To perform the following procedures on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.
Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm the following:
You have reviewed Anti-Spam and Antivirus Functionality to understand the general strategy for configuring all anti-spam agents so that they work together efficiently for your organization.
You have read Configuring Sender ID.
The Sender ID agent is the underlying agent for Sender ID functionality. It's important to understand that when you perform the following procedures, the Sender ID functionality is enabled or disabled, but the underlying Sender ID agent is still enabled. To disable the underlying Sender ID agent, run the Disable-TransportAgent cmdlet.
