A question was posed to me by a colleague at work that led me to the discovery that SEP 11's Outlook Auto-Protect feature uses an "Exchange Client Extension" to work with Outlook 2007 and earlier.  However, Outlook 2010 no longer supports Exchange Client Extensions (see: “Third-party Exchange client extensions do not load”):

Does anyone know whether Symantec will be replacing this functionality for Outlook 2010 or discarding it?  Thank you,

It would be  great if AP works the same way as it does with Outlook 2003, 2007

Email scanning is redundant anyway, Autoprotect will scan any attachment that gets written to the drive. Why have an email proxy that scans it again?

I agree with this proposal. We use some progams that access the personal calendar in outlook and the default setting for progammatic access is don't warn when an updated antivirus is detected. After upgrading to Office 2010 where the SEP client isn't detected anymore people get warning popups.
