    GFI Essentials

    Hi

    Does anyone have a copy of the freeware version of GFI Essentials that used to be available, as this version includes a non expiry version of the Exchange disclaimer part that does not expire after the 60 evaluation. They are no longer offering this as a download.

    Alternatively does anyone have any other FREE software that will add a disclaimer to Exchange for all outgoing emails?

    Thank you

    How are you doing your Antivirus/Antispam atm? If you don't have a solution in place you might want to put a Linux based SMTP server inbetween the Internet and your Exchange server. If you use a piece of software called amavis-new, as well as doing the antispam/antivirus checks for you, it'll add any disclaimer you want to outgoing mail.

    Be aware though that using a disclaimer like this is discouraged. It's not legally binding, wastes bandwidth and storage space and can trip spam filters.

    We are going through multiple antivirus/antispam solutions, so that is all taken care of. We are a Windows environment currently.

    Re: GFI Essentials

    Don't want to thread hijack, but has anyone tried the open source filtering/antivirus software ASSP for doing this kind of thing?

    I was going to try GRYNX but some of the issues reported put me off.

    You can do this with amavis-new on a linux based MTA, as I mentioned before.

    Re: GFI Essentials

    We are using Symantec Security for Exchange and I can read on quite a few sites that this uses annotations (disclaimers). Though I can not see anywhere in the config to do this?

    Does anyone use this?


    Thanks
