McAfee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.x
Microsoft Exchange 
Microsoft Outlook


VSE 8.x only supports Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) in Microsoft Exchange connected environments running Microsoft Outlook as the mail client.

VirusScan does not support Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) or Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) mail.

Email Scanning can become redundant depending on your email environment. The On-Access Scanner in VSE scans attachments when running and/or writing to local disk. This happens after Outlook Scan finishes scanning.
