Server and Email security and Exchange 2010



I just deployed the Server & Email Security package to our exchange server.


During the install I got this


[x] Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange (only update)


what does this “only update” mean?


Do I need to install something else first like it was 5 years ago?


When I open the console on that server I can see a lot of things but nothing about email protection.

So I have something missing or it didn't detect my exchange server.


Anyone having an idea what might be the issue here?

    yes, a push from the policy manager console.


    I'll give the local install a try.


    Thanks for the hint Smiley Wink

    I had a manual mail scan running that suddenly stopped after 17 minutes or so.


    now each time I start it it stops again after a few seconds and the infected counter increases.


    is it normal that it stops on every infection?

    Hello GVB,


    Please, check the settings in "General" tab of "Manual scanning" in Web Console. I guess you have "Only recent messages" set for "Incremental scanning" option. That's most likely the reason why scanning stops in a few seconds.


    Best regards,

    Indeed but it already processed 400.000 mails so this "recent" is a year or so then?


    it still seems to stop after change that setting tho.

    AFAIR, first time it scans all mails, next times only not scanned yet.

    ok, no problem.


    I kept pressing start scan and there's only 3 mailboxes left to do now.
