Executable: VPSCAN.EXE
Arguments: <FILE>

Vpscan.exe is included with Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition 8.0., it is located on CD1, in the Tools\Nosuprt\Vpscan folder

Note: In most environments Vpscan does not work as expected, but does not show any error. So you should always test Vpscan with the Eicar test virus to make sure it really works.

Virusscanner: Custom
Executable: NAVW32.EXE
Arguments: <FILE> /NORESULTS

All other settings like that Norton should process all files or that it should scan zip files can be set in the Manual Scanning section within the GUI.

Note: Make sure you disable boot sector scanning or else Norton will scan the boot sector for every mail attachment and that slows the processing of the emails.

Note: The install program of Norton 2003 refuses to install on a server, because it would violate the license.
