How do I configure Virus Protection with Content Filtering in WorkgroupMail v7?
This applies to the WorkgroupMail v7 Enterprise Edition and the WorkgroupMail v7 Professional Edition where these two plug-ins are registered (such as the default configuration when evaluating the Professional Edition). Click View | Summary in the Administrator program to check this. In the case where both plug-ins are registered the two functions are merged into the Content Filtering for added flexibility and the Virus Protection plug-in is not listed separately. This allows a wide choice of responses to be made when a virus infected message has been received and detected.
Edit the properties for the Content Filtering (by double clicking it) and select the Anti-Virus Engine tab. In the product selector box make the necessary selection for your anti-virus product. Check that you have rules configured to take the necessary action when a virus is detected.
