- SMS SMTP 5.0.x is installed on an Microsoft Exchange Server
SMS for SMTP 5.0.x is not compatible with Microsoft Exchange Server. Symantec Mail Security does not filter messages that don't flow through the SMTP gateway. For example, when two mailboxes reside on the same MS Exchange Server, or on different MS Exchange Servers within an Exchange organization, their messages will not pass through the Symantec Mail Security filters.
SMS SMTP 5.0.x should not be installed on a computer that is also running Microsoft Exchange Server.
