ForeFront for Exchange 2007 - Notifications - Not sending to Internal

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Morning All,

I have Forefront for Exchange 2007 on my Edge Transport (Windows 2008 R2). I have enabled notifications for virus and file filtering rules.

I have checked:
1- In the Shuttle bar > Settings > Antivirus - "Send Notifications" is checked.
2- In the Shuttle bar > Filtering > File - For each file name rule - "Send Notifications" is checked.
3- In the Shuttle bar > Report > Notification - For each notification I want, it is set to "Enabled" and has been configured with addresses.

Some notifications do work .... If I put an smtp address explicitly into the "To" field of the notification email. But if I use a builtin variable %ISAddress% it does not work.

I have also checked that I have "Internal Address" set on the Shuttle Bar > Settings > General Options section. The addresses shown here are my internal namespaces, separated with semi-colon ; and no spaces. I have recently changed this field.

Any ideas on how I get it to send email to my internal users when a rule is matched?
