Symantec Mail Security 6.5 for Microsoft Exchange is installed on an Exchange 2010 or 2013 Mailbox Server. When a manual scan runs, it does not scan any messages; the manual scan starts and stops immediately.
The "Total Messages processed" count shows as 0 even though the mailbox appears in the manual scan settings, and there are messages in the mailbox that was selected for the scan.

In the right pane right-click the Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange service, and then click Properties. 4. Click the Log On tab. 5.
