Symptoms

Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) includes Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) version 2. IMF version 2 uses the SmartScreen technology. IMF version 2 also provides a framework to enable the Computational Proof functionality.

For the Computational Proof functionality to work correctly and for the proof to be validated successfully, access to a list of RFC 2821 recipients is needed. However, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 does not expose the ability to obtain a list of RFC 2821 recipients. Additionally, the Computation Proof functionality is treated as being invalid.
