Enabling Exchange 2003 SP2 IMF v2

So you've uninstalled IMF v1, installed SP2, set the SCL thresholds and actions correctly and everything should be fine but UCE keeps arriving at your inbox?

Well it might be because you forgot the last bit - namely setting the Default SMTP Virtual Server properties for each SMTP server correctly. Under the General tab, IP Address, Advanced, Edit there’s a checkbox called "Apply Intelligent Message Filter".

If you can't find it then visit Vladimir’s blog, which contains detailed instructions (with pictures ;-) for enabling IMF v2.

Well, as if it's hidden that far down!

Thank you for pointing that out, I suspect hours could have been wasted on that...

You have to love the extensive documentation. Just talked to a tech yesterday who told me about the weightlist now available in SP2 for integration with third party SPAM gateways. He finally found the doc he was looking for in the release notes for SP2 - I couldn't find it anywhere (or I wouldn't have called). He gave me the call for free as a result.

I wish I would have found this like two weeks ago. I haven't just wasted hours on this, I have wasted weeks on it. Thank you very much, and if google is indexing this, they need to put this on the top of their search lists.
