When my xmon trial license expired xmon stopped functioning and began to hold mail in the Exchange Messages Pending Submission queue in the retry state. The event log is filled with Event ID 348: "A message could not be virus scanned – this operation will be retried later" Now I can understand that if something was wrong and a message was unable to be scanned then queue it until the problem can be resolved. However, if the problem is an expired license then mail should definitely not be held. People forget to renew their license all the time. In my case I have been waiting a WEEK since I initially ordered my license. In this particular deployment it was no big deal because this particular client is 50 inbound emails per day. If i had deployed this on one of my larger clients, say 4000 emails a day, this would be a nightmare. My question is, is this a bug or is this a feature? If this is a feature is there a way to disable the problem? If not can this be submitted as a feature request for a future release?
