Using Amavis as a front-end for Exchange

It would be greatly appreciated! I'm using the latest Ubuntu server. Spamassassin is installed. I also have DCC, Pyzor, and Razor installed. What's weird (and maybe correct, I'm really new to all this) is that I don't see any headers for SA, either. I can include the entire headers if that helps.

Setting up a relay server for your Exchange box can get a little complicated, but definitely doable. First of all, what OS are you using for your amavis? Is spamassassin installed?

I have a lot of experience with Exchange and postfix based relay server so I can try to help you as much as I can.
