I have a site running Symantec mail security for Exchange 5. Every morning, at around the same time smse reports an outbreak because of emails with the same subject, about 200 of them hit the server. I've checked the application log, but there's no information in there aside from a generic message saying there's an outbreak.
What I need to do is find out where these emails are coming from so I can just reject them without getting the outbreak notification every day. But I can't find anywhere the details of the emails, eg, they're not in quarantine, they're not being processed.
Anyone know where I should be looking to get the information I need in order to block these emails?

just reject the subject line in question

in the reporting section (advanced) you can put a date range and item checklist. Choose virus or outbreak i forget .. im not looking at one right now.

it will bring up a long file with every message that has entered server. its also useful if you need to find a message someone is missing.
