Virus on my Exchange 5.5 server!!!!

Virus on my Exchange 5.5 server!!!!

Virus on my Exchange 5.5 server!!!!

(OP)
My Exchange 5.5 has a virus that I can't seem to get rid of. I running TrendMicro Scanmail Ver 3 and when the mailboxes are scanned it finds nothing.

What's happening it that I'm running a RightFax server with a email get way to route email to Outlook. So....the RighFax server keeps getting requests from the exchange server to send out faxes, wich is reading one of the users contacts.

The right Faxserver tries to send out about 500 faxes even though the users it self has made no requests. When you click in the supposed cover page it says: "Virus".in the end the RightFax database gets so huge that services on that box stops.

Please help!!

RE: Virus on my Exchange 5.5 server!!!!

why not update to the current version of 3.51 for Scanmail? Try giving Trend Micro Support a phone call about this virus, I would like to know how you make out after talking to them. Second thought, look at antivirus.com and use the Exchange AV to try to scan your fax foldersT

Thanks for the info. I'll be getting the Scanmail 3.52.Trend support told me that should take care of my problem.

I'll keep you informed. What's your email address?
