Enable scanning of Exchange stores

You can configure PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and 2016 to run background scans at scheduled times on both the private and public stores. Background scanning checks all items in the store.

Note On-access and proactive scanning options are not supported on Exchange Server 2013 and later.

Click Configuration > Exchange store scanning policy > Change Exchange store scan settings and then click the Stores tab.

Exchange private store

Select the Enable background scanning check box to enable background scanning of Exchange private store.

Exchange public store

Select the Enable background scanning check box to enable background scanning of Exchange public store.

Enable background scanning only for out of working hours

Select the Enable background scanning only for out of working hours check box and enter your company's working days and times. PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange will run background scanning outside of these hours.

Note From the Manage changes menu, click Save changes to save your configuration.

To set the Exchange store scanning level, click the Scan tab. For information, see Change Exchange store scanning options.

Note Do not schedule scans for times when backups of the Exchange server are being made. If you do, it may impact the performance of your server when backup operations are in progress.
