What is kvoop.exe

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Good Morning,
We are running Symantec Mail Security 5.x and notice the other day a process that seems strange.  It is kvoop.exe location in our Symantec installation at D:\Symantec\scanner\rules\verity.  What is this file and do I need 4 of them running?   I know this product is EOL and we are working to migrate to Brightmail Gateway.  But for now, I need to know what this is.

Hi Doug,

It is a process that is part of SMS SMTP 5 and it performs out-of-process (that's what oop in kvoop stands for) True Type file identification and filtering.
