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 following is an Outlook configuration file provided by Paul Bowden that will allow you to configure Outlook to expose the SCL property.  Copy the SCL.CFG text and save it as SCL.CFG (in the same location as the .ICO files, usually program files\...\office 11\forms\language ID), then follow the instructions below to install it.

SCL.CFG:

Thanks for this, this is exactly what I was looking for.

I am noticing that the IMF can be easily fooled by spacing out the letters of words.

Oh well, at least it's getting rid of some.

There is a freeware application that allows you to expose the SQL level

This is great. It even worked with my install of Outlook 2007 Beta 2. Hopefully it works with the release version as well.

Seems it does not works with Outlook 2007. Is that possible ? Mail received by Outlook 2003 still appears in O2007 with their SCL but new mail appears with SCL blank.

I had to change Attribs=2 to Attribs=4 and Flags=0 to Flags=1 to get it working with Outlook 2007.
