Hi all,

I currently have another exchange server question open... but i decided its best to seperate this one from it.

I have a single Exchange Server 2007, Im guessing i should install ForeFront Security?
--->What benefits will i reap by doing this?
--->Are ther any licensing issues? - is it part ofserver 2007 Enterprise license?
---> Do you know of any guides i could follow in installing/configuring?


Thanks, :-)

You don't have to install Forefront, and there are additional licensing costs unless you have bought the Enterprise CALs. There are other products that do a similar thing. I haven't seen anything for Forefront, have to confess that I haven't even looked at it myself.

can you restate what we skipped?

Forfront is AV so it prob a good idea to run AV
you need Enterprise Cals for forfront but I believe you still have to purchase the product itself
