If you get Metadefender Email installer from OPSWAT portal or another source other than the Metadefender Core server you want it to process with, run the installation by opening a command prompt and type the following command:

MetadefenderEmailAgent.exe METASCANAPIKEY=<Mail Agent installer ID> METASCANURL=http://<Metadefender Core IP address>:8008/metascan_rest [ENTER]

Notes:

  • Replace <Mail Agent installer ID> with the ID shown on Metadefender Core management console source page under Email setup section

  • Replace <Metadefender Core IP address> with the IP address or hostname of the machine where you have installed Metadefender Core.

  • Metadefender Email will automatically detect if Exchange Server is installed or not and install the appropriate edition (Proxy/Exchange)
