Antivirus email protection on Symantec Endpoint Protection
Posted on 2010-08-20
I'm deploying some antivirus packages and had a couple questions. With Endpoint protection is it OK to disable the Antivirus email protection if you are ONLY using Exchange. Or i guess in other words is there any benefit of this feature for Exchange clients. I was under the impression that this only protects clients who have POP3 accounts or does a direct send to/from the workstation itself. Here is the deal anyway, I have a few clients that have some automated email reports using IIS and the SMTP feature on the workstation. The Symantec stuff messes with that and I was told to remove it. Rather than create yet another group of clients I was wondering if ALL clients could be without the POP SMTP email if they were using Exchange.
