Malware administrator did not receive the submission confirmation
Last Updated December 11, 2017
Administrator did not receive the malware submission confirmation after submitting a possible virus email using the Outlook Email Submission Add-in
Advanced Threat Protection Email
Email Submission Add-in
Possible causes are:
Administrator Notifications for Anti-Malware has not been configured in ClientNet.
More than one user has submitted a sample with the same file hash.
Administrators configuring the service must enter the first and last name and email address of an administrator in the Anti-Malware Email Submission section. The administrator information ensures that any messages that are submitted with attachments are routed through the correct anti-malware analysis workflow.
Go to Services > Email Services > Email Submission Settings
Enter details under Administrator Notifications for Malware
Click on Save
Symantec needs these administrator details to keep your organization updated on any submissions for anti-malware analysis. Note that if this section is left blank, any messages with attachments are not processed when they are submitted through the Email Submission add-in. Also, confirmation emails with the respective tracking number are only sent once in every 48 hours to the malware administrator per attachment's hash. As an example, if two or more users submitted the same sample each, the administrator will receive one notification email since the hash for all the submission would be the same.
