When trying to send mails ( a test mail) or from active jobs, the event viewer logs spamkiller to reject the mail. We''ve added sqlservr.exe, databasemail.exe etcetera to the whitelist but with no result.
What is the way to go to allow database mail to send mails using a sql server server server?

Maybe you activated "Prevent mass mailing worms from sending mail" in the "Access Protection Policy / Anti-virus Standard Protection". This blocks Port 25 which is required for SMTP-mailing (we use 8.5 so the policy names may differ).
