Exchange Server 2013 Preview – Administration – Part 6

Continuing on in my series on the Exchange 2013 Administrative Console I will cover a brand new feature to Exchange 2013. In previous versions of Exchange 2007 and 2010, Microsoft added AntiVirus and AntiSpam into the Hub and Edge roles. Now Microsoft is looking to further enhance Exchange protection.

Protection Tab


Below is a list of PowerShell commands related to the new Anti-Malware feature:


To look at what is in the default policy, simply hit the Edit button:


Click on Settings on the left to see what you can configure:




As you can see, most of the options here are for configuring notification or how to handle the message once it is detected by the Anti-Malware engine.

At this point this is all I have on this as there isn’t a whole lot of documentation on this feature.

Options to configure:

  • Block messages completely
  • Delete attachments and configure the blocking message
  • Who to notify of the issue – external or internal
  • Administrator notifications
  • Custom notifications
