FProt Log full of virus detections?

Postby plenic » Mon Oct 03, 2016 1:59 pm

When I check the log in FProt (6), I see tons of what appears to be virus detections. But the FProt does not appear to be picking them up and notifying in the Mailenable Antivirus Log..? I copied and pasted two of the entries below. Note, all entries in the log are of different viruses, etc..
Are these "real" antivirus detections?
All are in the C:\Windows\TEMP folder..
Cheers
Paul

Hi,

MailEnable does not use the Windows temp folder for scanning. The MTA agent that calls the F-Prot scanner will move the message to the MailEnable "Scratch" folder for scanning. The scratch folder is set within "Message Filter" properties window in the console. Navigate within the console to: servers > Localhost > Extensions > Message Filter. Right click on "Message Filter" and select properties. Here you can set the scratch folder. You need to ensure this folder is excluded the F-Prot resident AV scanner also.
