Spam Confidence Level - Per Mailbox in Exchange Online

Ben Owens

I have a requirement for SCL's to be set on a per mailbox basis.  You can do this on premises using the Set-Mailbox cmdlet with applicable setting e.g.


Set-Mailbox -Identity bobsmith -SCLDeleteThreshold 3


The TechNet artcile says these options are not available in Exchange Online.  Has anybody else had this requirement and if so, what have you done to achieve it?
