When making decisions on what SCL levels to set in the Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) configuration, it’s useful to see what SCL is stamped on particular mail. The deployment doc describes how to expose the SCL through an x-scl header when archiving messages in Chapter 6, “Storing the SCL Rating with Archived Messages”. This allows you to determine the correct settings to set for the Archive directory. But the SCL property isn’t exposed to the end user when they try to determine why either a non-UCE message was in the junk mail folder, or why a large number of UCE messages aren’t being blocked before they arrive in the Junk-Mail folder. Just because the property isn’t exposed, doesn’t mean it can’t be though!
