How do I update my virus definitions for IMail AV Standard?
Solution
IMail Anti-Virus Standard includes a utility which allows you to update your virus definitions, ensuring that the most recent viruses are caught. AVUpdate connects to the BitDefender website and determines if your virus definitions are current. If they are not, the virus definition update is copied to your system. Then, it stops the Queue Manager and SMTP services, installs the updates, and restarts the services (even if they were not running before). Virus definitions are updated whenever a new virus is discovered.

AVUpdate.exe is a command line utility, located in the IMail top directory, which takes no parameters. It can be run manually, or by using the Windows Task Scheduler service. To do a manual update of virus definitions, in a command prompt, navigate to the IMail directory and enter the following command:

avupdate.exe

Tip: To maintain the highest level of protection, it is recommended that you run AVUpdate at least once a day.

You can see the date of your anti-virus definitions in a text file:
\imail\plugins\update.txt

NOTE: You can automate this process by setting up a Scheduled Task in Windows. Create a batch file containing the following commands.

NET STOP SMTPD32

x:\imail_install_path\avupdate.exe

NET START SMTPD32
