Installing GFI MailSecurity in VS API 
mode 
Introduction to installing in VS API mode 
This chapter explains the procedure how to install and configure GFI 
MailSecurity in Exchange 2000/2003 VS API mode. In this mode, GFI 
MailSecurity uses the low level Microsoft Virus scanning API, ensuring 
that  the  scanning  process  will  be  done  in  a  high  performance  and 
reliable  manner.  For  more  information  about  GFI  MailSecurity 
operating modes and VS API, please see the previous chapter. 
VS API mode requires Exchange 2000 (SP1) or Exchange 2003! 
System requirements of VS API mode 
To install GFI MailSecurity you need: 
  Windows 2000 Server or Advanced Server with Service Pack 1 or 
higher installed OR Windows 2003 Server or Advanced Server.  
  Microsoft  Exchange  server  2000  with  Service  Pack  1  or  higher 
installed or Microsoft Exchange server 2003. 
  If using Small Business Server, ensure you have installed Service 
Pack 2 for Exchange Server. 
IMPORTANT:
  Disable Anti  Virus software from scanning  the  GFI 
MailSecurity  directories!  AV  products  are  known  to  both  interfere 
with  normal  operation  as  well  as  slow  down  any  software  which 
requires file access. In fact Microsoft does not recommend running 
file  based  anti  virus  software  on  the  Exchange  Server.  For  more

  Make sure that backup software is not backing up any of the GFI 
MailSecurity directories at any point.
