Filter Exchange 2013 health messages
Exchange 2013 sends health messages, proxy probes etc. internally every few minutes, to check MTA health and so on (see http://www.msexchange.org/kbase/ExchangeServerTips/ExchangeServer2013/monitoring/exchange-2013-e-mail-traffic-inboundproxyinboundproxycom-and-healthmailbox.html for more info about these). At the moment, these messages are visible in the GFI ME logs. I'd like these messages not to be touched by GFI ME at all or at least not visible...

I have also the Exchange Health Proxy Probe messages being blocked by the Header checking filter. I tried to add the recipient in the whitelist but the address is too long to fit in the field (4 characters too long) so I am unable to add this rule. Is there a workaround?

I've been having issues with this during a migration from 2013 to 2016. Inbound proxy probe messages get caught by the "Header Checking" module and blocked. In the short term I've white-listed the SMTP recipient email address

A work-around for this is to disable journaling at the Exchange server. Caveat to this is that anytime you apply a cumulative update, you have to remove & re-apply the rules again as they are version-specific. Visit the following link if you wish to give it a try:

That would be great. Currently this distorted the statistics heavily.
