Enabling or disabling the lists of file types to exclude from scanning
You can have multiple lists of file types to exclude from scanning. However, the file types that are included in the list do not bypass antivirus scanning unless the list is enabled. A list is enabled by default when you create it. Disable any list that you do not want Symantec Messaging Gateway to use when it scans email messages.
You can disable a list to troubleshoot email virus scanning issues. You can also create custom a list to use for an outbreak and disable the list when the outbreak ends. You can enable the list again in the event of another outbreak.
You can also disable the lists that you no longer want to use but do not want to delete yet.
