ME and Command line virus and Spam recommendations

Post by uves » Mon Apr 18, 2005 2:46 pm

Hello. I am trying to put some rigid Antivirus and SPAM protection systems in place. Can anyone assist me with some recommendations as to software and procedures? I am currently running ME Professional v1.56 on a Windows 2000 Server (with all up-to-date patches).

Looking forward to some help.

Thanks.

I have had excellent results with ASSP for the spam and Clamav for the frontline AV. Of course your AV should be multi-layered.
If you don't mind open source *nix based options, I would highly recommend these. The extra work to get them running on a windows box is well worth it IMO.

AV filtering is either globally on, or globally off...
