Hub Transport servers

Do the following before you install the product:
If you have Symantec Brightmail™ AntiSpam on the same server on which you want to install Mail Security, you must uninstall Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam before you install Mail Security. It is recommended that you do not run Mail Security on the same server as Symantec Brightmail AntiSpam.
If you use the optional email tools feature of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) or Symantec AntiVirus™ Corporate Edition (SAV-CE), you must uninstall the feature before you install Mail Security. These email tools are not compatible with Mail Security or Microsoft Exchange.
If you have any antivirus software that is on the server on which you want to install Mail Security, you must disable it before you install Mail Security.
After installation but before you turn on the antivirus protection, configure your other antivirus programs to exclude certain folders from scanning.

Modify your screen resolution to a minimum of 1024 x 768. Mail Security does not support a resolution less than 1024 x 768.
Configure the default receive connector for the Exchange Hub Transport server to permit connections from anonymous users.
Before you install Mail Security on Exchange 2010 mailbox role, you must specify a domain user account. The domain user account must fulfill the following criteria.
Mail Security uses the domain user account as a service account and this account must have a mailbox.
The user must be a member of Organization Management group under the Microsoft Exchange Security Groups Organizational Unit.

When the user updates the password, the same password must be provided to the Mail Security Service on all Exchange 2010 mailbox role servers.
