Prevent mass mailing worms from sending mail removes wlmail from the list

Jump to solution

Hello all,

I just switched pc's, on the previous one, I only had to set it once, but now, everytime I add wlmail.exe to the list of exluded programs for this rule, I can use Windows live mail to send mail, but a few minutes/hours later, the entry is gone so my outgoing mail is stuck again.

Is this something an administrator can set?

The version is 8.7i.

Regards, Dimi

You'll need to speak to your AV Administrator. From what you've written, it appears that they are using E-Policy Orchestrator to manage your AV installation, and refreshing your settings on a frequent basis.
