SMSMSE requires a separate license to enable Symantec Premium AntiSpam (SPA). This article provides a walkthrough on how to manually register the license for SPA.
NOTE: Registering the SPA license requires Internet access on port 443.
There are some Microsoft Exchange environments where direct Internet access is not available or you need to manually register the license.
Perform the following steps to manually register the SPA license with SMSMSE.
1. Download the attachment manualregister.zip to the SMSMSE server and unzip the files to a directory.
2. Open a command prompt and CD to the directory where the files are unzipped.
3. Run the following command to run the manual registration script:
NOTE: If a proxy server is required for Internet Access use the following command:
.\manualregister.bat -p <proxyserver:proxyport> -a <proxyuser:proxypassword>
Where the following is true:
<proxyserver:proxyport> is the IP address and port combination for your proxy server, separated by a colon (:).
<proxyuser:proxypassword> is the user name and password, separated by a colon(:) of a user with administrator rights
NOTE: If a username and password is used the proxy server must use Basic Authentication. If the proxy uses Windows Integrated authentication then the credentials from the Windows account running the register command are used and passed along to the proxy.
The following is an example of the output from a successful run of the script:
