MS Exchange tar pit feature switch ON

A couple weeks ago, Microsoft released Service Pack 2 for Exchange Server 2003. Typically, I wouldn't mention this type of news but the product does have a new SMTP 'tar-pitting' function against hackers. Too little, too late if you ask me...

"Boost your defenses with Microsoft Exchange Server Intelligent Message Filter and Sender ID. SP2 raises the bar in the antispam war. The latest Exchange Server Intelligent Message Filter incorporates checks against phishing scams and domain spoofing tactics."
"Gain more mobile e-mail security options.
