    Who uses FOPE with exchange? And was it free from microsoft?

    Hi

    I have seen on here and on HP and Dell websites that FOPE is free to education establishments but cannot actually register for it. I cannot find any reference to it on microsoft's website and without a link to their own website their support will not help me. Is anyone using it and got it free? How did you register for it? We currently have an EES agreement for windows and office and i would like to add this to it.

    Microsoft Offers Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) Special - Dell Software News - Dell Software News - Dell Community
    01-2012 : Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange Promotion

    Many Thanks

    I am having great difficulty getting this registered to and getting passed between the Volume Licensing and Passport/live@Edu depts. My reseller has added the Cals to my licensing but the subscriptions sections under the portal where I need to access this gives and error message.

    I have been informed by the Volume Licensing team that as our domain has been registered with Live@edu (not currently using it though), they advise me to disable this service so I can use FOPE.

    How far have you got with this ?

    Hello

    Our RM sales manager found a code that meant it wasnt exactly free but cheap. 1p per month per user so in total about £18 a year. We have downloaded the demo and are currently configuring that and then will activate the real thing hopefully.

    Is this for the 'Fore Front Online for Microsoft Exchange' filtering or are you referring to the exchange server instance?

    That email looks like it was only for people who have purchased Forefront protection 2010? Not people who just want to get FOPE? I maybe wrong.

    If you could find the SKU that would be great and i will try that.

    Cheers
