Do I need an Antivirus on a VM running WinServ 2008 R2?
Question asked by Raul Morales - November 20, 2015 at 11:59 PM
Hi... I installed the latest version of SmarterMail on a Virtual Machine running Win Serv 2008 R2. The VM is dedicated to run ONLY SmarterMail. Do I need to install an Antivirus? Does it interfere with SmarterMails's antivirus?

If you choose to install an antivirus on your server, you MUST exclude the SMARTERMAIL PROGRAM DIRECTORY and the SMARTERMAIL root directory, which contains the DOMAN and USER data.
That data must never be touched by any program other than SmarterMail.
