Selecting which mailboxes and public folders to scan with the realtime scan

 

Applies to: Forefront Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2009-07-08

Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) offers flexibility in selecting what mailboxes and public folders to scan with the realtime scan. You can include all mailboxes and public folders, or you can select specific mailboxes and public folders.

NoteNote:
This selection affects not only realtime antimalware scanning, but also any filtering options that are associated with the realtime scan.
To select which mailboxes and public folders to scan with the realtime scan
  1. Open the Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server Administrator Console, click Policy Management, and under Global Settings, click Scan Options.

  2. In the Global Settings - Scan Options pane, under the Scan Targets - Realtime section, for mailboxes and public folders, you can select one of three options:

    1. All—Scans all mailboxes or public folders. This is the default value.

    2. None—Does not scan any mailboxes or public folders.

    3. Selected—Scans specific mailboxes or public folders. When you choose Selected, the Select Mailboxes button or Select Public Folders button becomes active.

      NoteNote:
      Mailboxes and public folders with names that are made up entirely of backslashes (\) are not scanned if FPE is configured for Selected scanning. If FPE is set to scan all mailboxes or public folders, those that use backslashes or other special characters are scanned.
      • If you click the Select Mailboxes button, the Select Mailboxes dialog box opens, enabling you to enter part of a user name or alias. Clicking the search icon (represented by a magnifying glass) opens another dialog box in which you can select all or some of the mailboxes that met your search criteria. Click OK to return to the Select Mailboxes dialog box, where your selections are now listed. To remove a selection, click Remove. To return to the Global Settings - Scan Options pane, click Apply and Close.

      • If you click the Select Public Folders button, the Select Public Folders dialog box opens, enabling you to select entire public folder databases or specific public folders in that database. When you are done making your selections, click Apply and Close.

  3. Click Save.
