Email alerts with Backup Exec 2010

We are running Backup Executive 2010 and McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 8.7.  I want to enable backup alerts to be sent via Backup Executive and I have correctly set up the SMTP settings to do this.  

However McAfee (Virus Scan Enterprise) is blocking these alerts from the Backup server via the Access Protection Properties - Prevent Mass Mailing Worms from Sending mail.

Which Backup Exec processes do I need to add to the “processes to exclude” list to allow these alerts through to the SMTP Server?  I don’t want to simply unblock all.

I would see if there is a way to unblock port 25 instead of process
