Hi Everyone

Ages ago, I came across a document on the McAfee site that detailed the recommended exclusions for Exchange 2007 servers...unfortunately, I can't find it anymore :(

There is a similar doc here

http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/security-message-hygiene/configuring-file-level-antivirus-software.html

But I was wondering if anyone knew of the link to the McAfee one or had their own recommendations?

We will be deploying the CAS, Hub Transport and MBX server roles on different hardware using Windows 2003 Ent x64. We are running McAfee 8.5i clients Patch 7.

Thanks

A little more comprehensive, but if you take it in chunks you will get the job done..
Have fun.
