What kind of permissions does the current account have on the GFI
Antispam public folder tree. I think it is a permissions issue. Make the
account Owner for the public folder and try.

Subject: [exchangelist] GFI Mail Essentials 11 - Public Folder Scanning
and Processing

Hello all, 

I don't know where else to turn, but you guys.  I've been on tech
support with GFI Mail Essentials for the last couple of days with no

My problem is with the "GFI AntiSpam" public folders in Exchange.  For
whatever reason, none of the mail that is being dragged into those
folders is being "processed".  I am using a separate SMTP Gateway box
running GFI Mail Essentials along with a separate Exchange server
running Exchange 5.5 on Winnt 4.0.  

I have configured the GFI AntiSpam public folders to populate on
Exchange using GFI's IMAP configuration editor.  At first, I was using a
non-admin acct.  Since then, I have changed the IMAP acct to the domain
administrator (suggested by GFI support), but to no avail.  I have
stopped and restarted Exchange and the GFI SMTP box after making
changes, but to no avail.  When I test the account in GFI IMAP editor,
the test is successful.  Unfortunately, the public folders still do NOT
appear to be processing the mail.  

Who has some experience with GFI Mail Essentials version 11?  Who has
some specific experience with the AntiSpam public folders?

Anyone's help is much appreciated. 

Kindest regards,
