VirusScan software blocking SMTP mails from being sent
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have created a webpage in VB and want to send mails using SMTP. That all works fine, except that the virus scan is set up to block mails. I have been looking around and see other people have tackled this problem but couldn't get this working for me.
If you open up the VirusScan console and click 'Access Protection' and then unclick the check box 'Prevent Mass Mailing worms from sending mail' on the server then the website can send mails without any problem. Unfortunately, the VirusScan software resets itself every hour or so and rechecks this checkbox and when this happens the site can no longer send mails again. I'm sure there's a solution to this but I just haven't been able to find it. How to set this configuration permanently?
Thanks for your help,
