Should I remove Antigen from Exchange?

Antigen up for renewal but not sure if we should?

We use Messagelabs to scan all our inbound/outbound email for Viral/Spyware before its delivered to the Exchange box.

On the Exchange box we have Antigen and another program called Exclaimer (used for Disclaimers)

Exclaimer (http://www.exclaimer.com/Default.aspx) also have modules for Anti-Spam & Virus Protection which are a approx 1/3 that of Antigen !!

Would it be advisable to use this solution and remove antigen?

We're a not-for-profit/charity so cost is paramount.

Cheers

dont remove it if its no causing any problems. sure it might not pick up new definitions but it would not hurt to have it as back up.

There is no need for two _email_ antivirus solution on your environment. But how ever you should run local Antivirus on the Exchange which checks local disks and the Exchange database for virii.

If your Messagelabs filtering also filters spam there definitely isnt need for the products youre now running on the Exchange. But still you would need local antivirus scanner to keep server itself clean.
