Antivirus and backup software

Antivirus and backup software scanning may cause GFI MailEssentials to malfunction. This occurs when such software denies access to certain files required by GFI MailEssentials.

Disable third party antivirus and backup software from scanning the following folders:

Folders to be excluded from antivirus scanning
<..\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\GFI>
<GFI MailEssentials installation path>\GFI\MailEssentials\

<..\Inetpub\mailroot> - if installed on a gateway machine.
