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?

    > deployed


    What do you mean by "deployed", the use of Policy Manager Console for pushing software or local installation at the computer or via remote desktop?


    The readme of FSAV ESS 12.11 says this:


    "... Section 5.3 Remote installation
    Remote installation with F-Secure Policy Manager is possible for F-Secure Server Security components only! To deploy F-Secure E-mail and Server Security, make the attended installation either locally or over the remote desktop connection..."

    yes, a push from the policy manager console.


    I'll give the local install a try.


    Thanks for the hint Smiley Wink

    Now the goodies appear in the console.

    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.

    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.
