Effective 1-December 2012, Symantec no longer provides technical support for Mail Security 5.0 for Microsoft Exchange, including any Maintenance Packs and/or patches for each version, in all released languages. Online self-service support in the Knowledge Base will continue to be available for a minimum of 3 years.

Symantec recommends that you upgrade to latest product version that supports your operating system and version of Microsoft Exchange.  In the interest of keeping your environment secure, Symantec also recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft Exchange and that you use a version of your operating system that is currently supported by the vendor.
