I have recently enstated a standard spam subpolicy in Symantec Mail Security for MS Exchange - version 126.96.36.199. SMSMSE is installed on a Windows Server 2003 environment. The subpolicy is set to scan incoming SMTP traffic, weed out the spam, and delete it automatically. In regards to the mechanism, it works well. The problem is that SMSMSE is sending sending a notification to the Windows event log with every message that is blocked. These notifications are overwhelming the event log and to be honest, I don't even want to know if a spam message is deleted.
The event log info is as follows:
Source: Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange
Category: Content Filtering Rules
Event ID: 291
Description: The message "%message%" located in SMTP has violated the following policy settings:
SubPolicy: Filtering SubPolicy
The following actions wer taken on it:
The message "%message%" was marked for deletion for the following reason(s):
A filtering rule was violated.
I have disabled ALL notification options in the SMSMSE console for the spam subpolicy, yet I still receive these notifications in the event log, to the tune of about 100 a day.
What simple thing am I missing that would enable me to turn off these notifications?
