McAfee Security for Lotus Domino 7.5 (Windows)


As manufacturers release new operating systems, platforms, and service packs, the original product guides might not reflect the current support policy for those platforms.

Most of the following information is available in the product installation guides and readme.txt files. However, some of the information is available only in product management statements published in the Knowledge Base.

Supported operating systems and platforms

The following tables detail the McAfee products supported for use on Windows workstations, server operating systems, and IBM Lotus Domino platforms. Only the most current versions are included because most customers upgrade to the latest service packs shortly after they are released.
