Connecting to FortiGuard AntiVirus service

Note that, in order to connect to FortiGuard AntiVirus services, you must have a service contract. To receive the up-to-date antivirus engine and signatures, FortiMail must connect to the FortiGuard server.

  1. Go to System > FortiGuard > AntiVirus in the Advanced Mode of the FortiMail UI.
  2. Optionally, if you have a local server that can provide a faster connection, enable Use override server address and enter its IP address in the Override server address field.
  3. Enable Allow push update to allow the FortiMail unit to accept push notifications. Push notifications only notify the FortiMail unit that an update is available and do not transmit the update itself.
  4. Enable Scheduled update and use the drop-down menus to define how often the connection to FortiGuard AntiVirus is updated.
  5. Click Apply.
