  • AntigenService Event ID 8046

    I am using Antigen 9.2.1097 on my Exchange 2003 SP2 / Server 2003 R2 SP2 server. On a nightly basis I get the following error in my event viewer three times.

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: AntigenService
    Event Category: MAPI Error
    Event ID: 8046
    Date: 4/23/2010

    The Sophos Virus Detection Engine scan engine is now obsolete and no longer supported. Updates are no longer available for this engine, and therefore the update check for this engine has been disabled. Please review the scan engines chosen for your scan jobs and make another selection to ensure up-to-date protection.For more information, see

    I get one for each of Sophos , CA Vet, and AhnLab engines. I know that these engines are obsolete. I have disabled them in all of my Antigen scan jobs and engine update tasks. They show as disabled in scheduled tasks and haven't run for almost 10 days. What am I missing?

      Thanks Sembee! Looks like I had missed them in a couple spots. I disabled them all now (I think). Will see how it goes.
