Trend Micro WFBS v7 AntiSpam on SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007
Posted on 2011-03-25
I'm new to servers etc so please forgive me if my terminology and understanding aren't quite right.
We have a problem with the Exchange mail filtering in that it filters out legitimate mail as well as spam. Rather than fiddle with its settings, we want to set up the antispam component in Trend Micro WFBS v7. I followed the instructions from Trend and gone throught he process of downloadiing the MAPICDO component, editing the registry to disable the standard junk mail filter and enable the Trend one, enabling the services, but when I try to activate the antispam in the Trend console, it won't. It simply says it was unsuccessful.
I have spent a couple of hours on the phone with Trend support, during which time they apparently tested it for themselves and discussed it with their peers, and in the end they politely informed me that that feature does not appear to work and they will have to remove reference to it from thewir website. They say the problem appears to be with their v7 product and Exchange 2007. Say what!
Can anyone here help me with this? Has anyone got it working?
Does their alternative product - ScanMail fro Exchange - work?
