I am setting up the notification policy for McAfee Security for MS Exchange, and I have a (hopefully) quick question about the Sender E-mail address.
By default this is MSMEODuser@example.org and the McAfee online help and the product guides both say that "McAfee recommends that you do not modify the Sender E-mail address because the software creates and uses this address for multiple purposes".
My question is - what are these 'multiple purposes' and what will I break if I change this address? I can't find any details about this anywhere...
the user in the sender field is used for sending all the alerts and reports that msme can generate.
to answer your question about what will happen if you change the address can you let me know:
what version of msme is installed and is this a mailbox, hub or mailbox/hub server?
We have installed MSME version 8.5.8327.103 on all our Exchange servers. We have a group of servers running the CA and Hub roles, and another group just running the mailbox role.
In the mailbox role - look at msme interface - settings & diagnostics - on demand (HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\McAfee\MSME\Systemstate)
This should reflect the user that was created - it will be a genuine user in AD and a mailbox in Exchange.
Thats the one that should be used.
for the mailbox only servers they should use the msmeoduser@<AD domain> account for the notification senders address. if they use a different address, then msme may run into authentication issues when trying to connect to the hub server to send the notification email.
Before you ask: I changed the Sender using ePO Policy for MSME 8.5 AND checked the StandAlone UI @ the Exchange Servers.
Both showing MSMEODUser@customer.domain - still mailing as MSMEODUser@msme.com
