In ePO go to you policies catalog.
Select Virus Scan Enterprise (whatever version you have)
Select On Delivery Email Scan Policies
Click edit by the policy you want to change
Uncheck Enable on-delivery email scanning
That should do it.
Thanks for the info.
Because we already have central exchange server email scanning software we had already 'unchecked Enable on-delivery email scanning' from day 1.
What i am trying to achieve is the complete removal of the email scanning component from the Virus Scan software on each client.
After a number of tests we have found that regardless of whether the email scanning is enabled or disabled in the config. the component is still installed and the MS Outlook plugins are still present. This is causing 2 problems. One is that just the presents of the email scanning component is having huge impact on our email archiving software (Zantaz EAS). and the second is that even with the email scanning disabled the plugin for outlook is using an extra 40mb to 80mb of memory when outlook is running.
I know I can get users to remove the Outlook scanning plugin from within Outlook but I am trying to find a way of centrally removing the whole email scanning component completley.
I have not tried it, but if I was looking to do something like what you ask, I would try the following.
In the deployment task, if you click on settings there is a box to the right of 8.5 line item with three dots. Click that and the resulting dialog box is for editing command line options.
Try putting in "REMOVE=EmailScan" (without quotes, of course).
I would try it on one machine (usually my own) run immediately and then see what the result is.
Hope this helps.
