1. NAV on a server is way old. That means you are running at most version
7.6 which has problems catching some forms of Netsky as well as others. You
need to be using an up-to-date AV scanner for the server.

2. Are the definitions up to date?

Subject: [exchangelist] virus on server

Hi all

I have exchange 2000, GFI mail security and GFI mail essentials installed on
it, NAV for Exchange, and NAV corporate edition client for file scanning,
all the recommended exclusions of the folders and extensions are made (i.e.
the inetsrv folder, the .edb, .log..stm, etc...) 

I have Windows 2000 SP4, and exchange SP3, all hot fixes are up to date
(even October hotfixes all applied on the server) the exchange august post
service pack (though irrelevant to this is applied), server is not open
relay, behind a hardware firewall.

Bottom line how come the server still gets infected with Netsky and other

Thanks for any help
