I'm with John, the server's OS needs protection from viruses also.
There are exploits out there that do not require an interactive login,
they'll atack your service accounts, so just CYA and protect yourself.

There are two trains of thought:


1), Yes, install AV to protect the server but exclude all Exchange
directories (including store directories)and exclude the mailroot
directory .


2) No, not needed since nothing else should be on there anyways and no
one should be logging onto the Exchange server directly except rarely.


I'm in the first group.
