    I'm looking for someone to confirm my suspicions before I get too concerned over this anomaly.

    I have installed a custom application that essentially logs production data, generates a report, and emails it to whomever is on the list. McAfee is blocking this application from using Port 25 because it is a suspected "mass emailer". I put the process in the exclusion list and it works for a period of time but it appears that my entry is automatically removed. I'm thinking that there is some policy that prevents localized changes and that if I need to exclude this application I'll have to take the matter upstairs to the IT guys for the proper administration. Am I thinking correctly?

    It's not my box or else I would take matters into my own hands. I'm not familiar with the Enterprise version of McAfee so that's why I asked. I'll just put this issue back to the owner and tell them they have to loosen up the restrictions if they want the email thing to work.

    McAfee lets you tie down all sorts of things, but once tied down it can be hard to open them up again.
    You need to create a new policy for the machine that sends the email. The IT bods will need to do this for you.

    p.s. McAfee is not great in the enterprise, it's a bandwidth hog and is so complex as to require a full time administrator to get the best out of it.

    cheers, Paul
