The Sophos Community will be unavailable from 13:00 to 18:00 UTC this Saturday, October 1st for upgrades. Stay tuned to our Twitter account @SophosSupport for updates.
In PureMessage for Windows/Exchange, Sophos AutoUpdate downloads packages, but fails to install the spam rules package.
In the log file error 80041f04 is displayed.
This can happen if
Sophos AutoUpdate failed to update the pmsr package (the spam rules package). This occurs because 'inetinfo.exe' keeps the spam rules locked.
The failed installation creates two folders 'datatemp' and 'bintemp' in C:\Program Files\Sophos\PureMessage\. These folders must be deleted.
