Our setup has a mailbox that scl 5-7 gets sent to.
It works fine, except the diag information isn't very helpful:

Diagnostic information for administrators:

Generating server: domain

#550 5.2.1 Content Filter agent quarantined this message ##

the reason isn't displayed beyond the: cfagent has quarantined this message.
was it SCL?  was it a keyword we have blocked?
Is there a way to display said reason on these emails so we can adjust some settings?

It is possible to list the SCL rating in Outlook, which is very usefull - http://www.petri.co.il/display_scl_level_in_outlook_2003.htm

Ensure you Anti-spam is also setup to auto update from Microsoft.

Finally are you also implement Blacklisting?

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately that doesn't help.  As the message itself is never delivered, it is caught by agent, and resent from postmaster putting the scl at -1

I believe most people use 3rd party spam filtering, which may not be a bad idea with the issues we have with no reporting.

We use bl.spamcop but no manual ip's to block.
And only block the words viagra and stuff.
