Exchange 2007 – How to bypass domain and user filtering

You can configure Content Filtering in Exchange to bypass specific users or domains.

Open the Exchange Management Shell:

# To check the Content Filter configuration, type in:


# To set the Bypassed Senders (example):

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenders,

# To set the Bypassed Sender Domains (example):

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenderDomains, *

Important Note: BypassedSenders and BypassedSenderDomains are multivalued properties. When you use the Set-ContentFilterConfig cmdlet, it will overwrite the values of those properties. If you just need to add more senders or domains, please follow the example below.

# To add Bypassed Senders:

$x = Get-ContentFilterConfig

$x.BypassedSenders += “”, “”

# To remove Bypassed Senders (can only be done one at a time):

$x = Get-ContentFilterConfig

$x.BypassedSenders -= “”

# To empty the list:

Set-ContentFilterConfig -BypassedSenders $null
