Using aliasdetourhost Keyword For Virus Scanning (Doc ID 1012207.1)

Last updated on JUNE 10, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.0.0 and later
All Platforms


This document describes how to use the aliasdetourhost keyword (introduced in Messaging Server 5.2p2), which improves the ability of the Messaging Server's MTA (Message Transfer Agent) to easily and efficiently detour messages through any kind of external scanner.  It is largely replaced by direct plugins for popular virus and spam scanning solutions and the milter interface.
