Should i disable my content filtering in MS Exchange 2010 if I am enabling Premium Anti-Spam in Mail Security for MS Exchange?

If you are using content filtering to block specific content per a security policy within your company I would say no.  Premium Anti-Spam does a fantastic job of blocking SPAM, however content filtering is also used on mail that is allowed in or out (not considered spam).  So for example if a partner or company or even an employee sends an email with content that is not allowed out or in it may not necessarily be considered Spam and would pass through.  So you would need to determine if the content filtering you are currently doing is required and if not what risk you may be taking if any by turning it off.

Hope this helps
