          None of the consumer products are designed for servers.   You need to ask your question here:  Business General Discussion

            I just realized it's software, not hardware.  No, it isn't supported.  The only coverage is as described on the products pages, see below.  But anything saved to hard drive is scanned of course.


            Supported Browsers for Anti-Phishing

            • Internet Explorer 8.0 or later
            • Firefox 4.0 or later
            • Google Chrome

            Supported Email Programs

            • POP3–Windows Mail, Outlook Express, Outlook, Netscape, IncrediMail, Thunderbird, Becky, Shuriken

            Required for Anti-Spam Toolbar

            • Windows Mail or Outlook Express 6.0 or later

            • Thunderbird 5.0 or later
            • McAfee Anti-Spam also supports other POP3 email clients (without SSL) and web accounts

              Hi M.Umer


              Whether 'Supported' officially or not, VirusScan Command Line Scanner would fit the bill nicely with MDaemon.


              The last time I had MDaemon at a client site, MDaemon uses Kaspersky (command line scanner) running as a way to scan each email message on entry. I used VSE On-Access Scanner as a second line of defense. Seemed to work well for me (client).


              VirusScan Command Line Scanner could do the same.


              I wrote some notes on VirusScan Command Line Scanner here: (https://community.mcafee.com/message/343375#343375) Command Line Scanning, McAfee CLS, Batch


              I Hope this is 'Helpful.'

                As I thought, Enterprise software would be your solution.  That, however, requires bulk purchase and usually a grant number for download and support.

                  Hi M.Umer


                  In addition to my description above, I realized that I should have mentioned that MDaemon, back when I still worked with it, would write each email message to disk in a somewhat protected manner. At that time MDaemon would launch the Kaspersky Command Line Scanner against the email message. (Kaspersky taking appropriate actions, before allowing the message to be received and unlocked. VSE On-Access Scanner would then take action if needed.)


                  This would present an interesting problem, as how would you replace the Kaspersky launch within MDaemon, with McAfee VirusScan Command Line Scanner. That is more a MDaemon question at heart.


                  I would be interested in your solution to this problem.
