Customize Forefront Endpoint Protection e-mail Alert

Posted on 2011-10-07
Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I have installed forefront endpoint protection 2010 for SCCM and have it emailing alerts properly to all users that need to recieve them. My question is this, is there a way to customize the e-mail notification message? Is it contained with a .xml file? Can it be modified through the SCCM / Forefront GUI? I would like the e-mail to contain a link to our internal reports services so that computer techs can check anti-virurs infection status and take appropriate action if necessary.

Thanks for any help or links anyone can provide.

    I don't think so. I just have not installed it, but maybe a Status Message is logged, so you could create a Status Filter Rules which sends a specific E-Mail.
    Another possibility is to use SCOM Agents to capture those events.

    I like how your thinking, i could setup a status filter rule, and create my own xml notification page, however i would still need to know the variables for specifying the name of the malware on the infected machine. Any thoughts as to where i might find these variables. or how i could go about finding them myself?
