Configure SCL Junk Folder Threshold Per Mailbox

Posted in Windows Server by Steve Sinchak

I like to set a stronger SCL threshold on my personal exchange mailbox since I would rather check my junk folder more often than have potential spam in my Inbox.  In Exchange 2007 you can set a different SCL junk threshold for each mailbox with the set-mailbox cmdlet within the Exchange Management Shell. 

Just follow these steps:

  1. Start the Exchange Management Shell.
  2. type in set-mailbox -identity <mailbox name> -SCLJunkEnabled $true -SCLJunkThreshold <value> and hit Enter.

    Accepted values for SCLJunkThreshold is 0-9.  I like to use 4 for my mailbox. 
  3. After the command executes run get-mailbox -identity <mailbox name> | format-list and hit Enter to verify the change to the SCLJunkEnabled and SCLJunkThreshold properties.
