Help Needed on Alerts

Hi All,

Please would someone be kind enought to explain to me how to set up email alerts when a virus has been found. I am using Mcafee 8.5i with the latest engine and Mcafee Agent 3.6.

This is now getting a little desperate for me and any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Help Needed on Alerts

I am assuming that you are the administrator for the EPO server. On the EPO server you can set a "Notification" rule that will email you when a system detects a virus. That is what we do in our environment.

On EPO 3.6.1 you will see under your server name a section called "Notifications". Click on the tab called "rules" and then select "add rule".

Hi Twenden,

Thanks very much for the reply, I have now added the alert like you mentioned and it worked ok.
