Hi all

They might call it AVG for Exchange but it is not a proper Exchange database 
virus scanning application. In other words it cannot scan inside the actual 
Exchange database. Check their web site. It only scans Exchange accounts 
through Outlook at the desktop. Have a look at Sybari Antigen or Trend 
ScanMail. The quotes below are directly off their web site.

Certifies mail as virus free (except MS Exchange Server 2000/2003).

a.. AVG E-mail Scanner (EMS)
E-mail checking is supported either directly by plug-ins for certain 
applications (Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, The Bat!) or by Personal E-mail 
scanner - AVG EMS works at POP3 and SMTP protocol level. EMS can also protect 
e-mail communication of all other E-mail clients (for example Outlook Express). 
Each E-mail client plug-in can be individually configured to have its own 
testing configuration including the language definition for certification 

  a.. With AVG EMS, it is possible to filter attachments by their extensions or 
by their content 
  b.. The solution at POP3/SMTP protocol level is independent of the E-mail 
client used 
  c.. It is possible to protect multiple e-mail accounts and to check multiple 
e-mail servers 
  d.. SMTP authentication is supported

  Is anyone running AVG for Exchange? If so, how do you like it? Anything to 
look out for? Compared to Symantec?


  Any thoughts welcome.
