Customize SMTP message on Server in DEMO mode
« on: March 31, 2004, 01:12:30 AM »

I have the demo version of Avast 4 running on my MS Server 2003 box and all seems fine.  Except I cannot customize the SMTP message alerts.  When I do a test it says "Virus Warning" in the subject line and "This is a test message from avast! anti-virus." in the body.  When I set up the alert I set the comment to tell me the machine name that is infected, but it does not.  Is this just beacuse I am only generating a test?  Will an actuall infection provide me the comment line as well so I know what machine is infected?  Also is this the same for the workstation version of Avast?  We have 4 servers and 20 workstations and I am trying to get a bugjet to switch all of them to avast.  But i need to make sure that if I get an SMTP alert that I can tell by the message what machine is in trouble.

This is what the notification looks like:

avast! [NEMESIS]: File "C:\ei\" is infected by "EICAR Test-NOT virus!!" virus.
"Simple user interface" task used
Version of current VPS file is 0403-19, 03/26/2004

NEMESIS is the name of the computer.
So -- you should probably be all set.

I believe there was some ini switch for customizing this message -- please let me know if you want to know more about this...

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
