manual scan detection in SMSMSE 6.5

Hello! I have never had an infection so I am not sure how to handle this. I ran a manual scan in Symantec Mail Security for MS Exchange 6.5 and had 4 virus violations detected in the results. How do I go about seeing details of those 4 since there doesn't appear to be an option in the scan pane to view those. I am attaching a shot of the scan window.

normally the software tells you at the end what it did : remove, delete, or quarantined
did it report that - or not?
you can always run mbam, and see what results it gives (quick scan please)

Hey Nobus! Since this is not the regular antivirus scanning client, it doesn't provide that sort of view after scanning. This is the Exchange protection application that scans all the items in the information store and whatever else parts of Exchange you choose. Since I never really dealt with scans before I am just not sure how to view the results as it doesn't give me an option to see details of the items detected. I am running another scan though to check to see if those items were pulled out in the first scan or if they appear again.

I see four items listed as unrepairable viruses whose attachments were quarantined which does correspond to having four viruses from the manual scan. Can I assume that those are the violations and were safely quarantined as a result? Sorry since this probably is as simple as it sounds, but since it is a first time for me I want to be sure I am reading this properly.

i understand it the same way as you; if they quarantained the containers of the virus - all is ok imo
you may find other configuration settings if you like to change it
since i'm not familiar with this version, maybe best to contact symantec, to be sure

Ok after rescanning it all came up clean. I was trying to avoid a re-scan as it takes most the day for it to complete, but it is worth the thoroughness. It turns out it does in fact remove anything it finds. Thanks Nobus!!
