Requesting Best Practices for McAfee Groupshield for Exchange 2003.

Posted on 2008-10-26
Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I run McAfee Groupshield 7 on my Exchange 2003 server. I have had a hard time finding good documentation on recommended configuration settings for the Groupshield application. I have talked with tech support, and the "Best Practices" document they pointed me to provides minimal help compared to the system documentation, which only shows where the options are located in the software- versus, what implications the options have.

I want to make sure I'm getting the best out of the software. I've done several Google searches and don't get much besides the McAfee presales pages from their website.

Yes we have all seen the User Guide I would agree with original post there just isn't anything out there. Also I have contacted Tech support for another issue since upgrading and still I am waiting on their second reply. Are will to assume that we would configure 7 like 6???

I agreed totally. There has been very minimal information about GroupShield on the Internet as well. Seem like McAfee is not really keen or interested with this product of theirs.
