GFI Mail Essentials and Symantec's SMSMSE on same server?
Hi experts, here is my problem.
We are currently running Symantec's Mail Security for exchange (v4.6 if I'm not mistaken) but have now acquired GFI Mail Essentials to fight spam.
Is it ok to have both softwares running on the same server? Since there are some options available only if GFI is installed in the Exchange itself, this is where we would like to have it installed. We arent considering uninstalling SMSMSE because it also has an anti-virus and we didnt get the GFI's anti-virus solution and I dont we will be able to.
Another option would be to leave the anti-virus part of SMSMSE and have GFI deal with spam, but not sure if that would work either since I havent been able to find documentation.
If both could run on same server, that would be great.
I have both MailEssentials and MailSecurity on my exchange server and it works very well. These Antivirus/Antispam programs that run on your exchange servers are tightly integrated with exchange and exchange is tightly integrated with AD. I can imagine conflicts with two different programs.
Another expert may have experience with running these two combos though....
