F-secure on e-mail and server security premium running on Exchange 2013

RWK W/ Alumni Posts: 1 Security Scout



I have a question.  I can not find the manual for the Exchange F-secure anti virus software.

I want to white list a few domains that are being threated as SPAM. What is the syntax to whitelist a complete domain name ?

    Hi Roderick,

    Here is ESS guide

    I checked what there is a possibility to set filter like * and this will allow senders.

    Note: The product checks the sender address from the SMTP message envelope, not from the message headers.

    Also I noticed what your screenshots are from old ESS (before 12). Pls consider upgrading to ESS12.12.
