A: The Exchange Server Toolbox Outlook Add-in communicates with the Exchange Server Toolbox using TCP and UDP port 8072 (SpamAssassin) and port 8074 (Archive). The windows firewall registration of these ports is done during installation of the Exchange Server Toolbox but may be prohibited by custom rules of your firewall configuration. Please make sure the ports 8072 and 8074 are accessible on the Exchange Server.
Furthermore the windows service "NetTcpPortSharing" needs to be started on the server to connect to the archive.

The SpamAssassin connection can be tested by connecting to the following URL:
       http://<EXCHANGESERVER>:8072/Jam.ServiceModel/SpamAssassin.IJamSpamdHelper

 When putting this URL in your browser you will see a web page like below on a successfull connection:
