timgreen7077 used Ask the Experts™
Does anyone have any opinions on Exchange 2016 native malware scanning? Is there a noticeable performance effect? Does it work well and is it configurable? I getting ready to install Exchange 2016 and i have the option to leave it default or disable and enable later? Just curious about opinions with it.

Just disable it. Microsoft native scanning, is a headache for admins. Does nothing and uses unnecessary resources. Better to use 3rd party product, like Brightmail, EOP or message labs.
