After email address with invalid format is added to Allowed Senders list, Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange (SMSMSE) will bypass SPA scanning on every inbound email.
No errors can be found under Windows Application Event log.
However, if debugview log is collected, the following line can be observed from the debugview log:
SMSMSESMTPAgent: Message whitelisted by SMSMSE; bypassing SPA.
Email address with invalid format is added to the Allowed Senders list.
Here are some examples:
User One <email@example.com>
firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto: email@example.com>
Remove the invalid email addresses records from the Allowed Senders list and re-add them back in the correct format.
These are the valid formats:
firstname.lastname@example.org, @domain.com or *@domain.com
SMSMSE 6.x, 7.0.x
