Whre can I get Information about Virus Scan API Emplementation for Exchange Server 2000

Nagarajhr asked
Hello all,

I want to filter attachments in MS Exchange server 2000 using AntiVirus API feature provided by Microsoft. For implementing this, Microsoft is saying a DLL is required and the registry keys required to enable virus scan are explained in MSDN. But the implementation of DLL is not provided anywhere. If anybody knows this please help.

Watch Question

There are some alternatives at http://www.slipstick.com/addins/antivirus.htm along with four articles about the API at the bottom of the article.
You'd need to contact Microsoft directly and they will put you and your company in touch with the product group which manages the AVAPI interface. The interface is not publically available and AFAIK companies which inquire about using it are vetted prior to being given access to the information.

Now, I'm far from an expert on the subject, but it seems that oen could write an equally efficient transport event sink for message filtering and there are examples of such an implementation floating around.
