I have an SBS 2008 64-bit server running with Exchange 2007.  I've installed SBS 2008 with default settings in that intalled the trial version of Forefront for Exchange.  Since then, I've installed and configured Symantec MailSecurity for Exchange and EndPoint Protection.  Since I have Symantec running can't I go into Programs and Features and remove Micorosft Forefront Security for Exchange?  I don't think I need this program competing with Symantec's product, etc.  I am not sure if I should simply leave it, disable it, or remove it entirely.  I do not want to cause problems with the server or exchange installation.  Thus far, I accessed the Forefront Security console and selected Disable All in General\Scanning\Eanble ForeFront Exchange Scan option.  I also selected Scan Updates section and disabled all engine updates.  Please let me know the best approach.  Thanks.

Hi,

You can remove it completly. You are right, you don't need it when you have SMS and SEP on the same machine.

Best regards,
Vladimir

vvlada's response validated my suspicion, and now I can confidently remove the product with fear of ruining the SBS 2008 OS or associated software.  Thanks so much for your response vvlada!!!!
