"Wanna" ransomware outbreak. Please see this Sophos article sophos.com/kb/126733 for advice on how to protect your organization. Immediate action recommended.
Digest emails do not arrive even after running the scheduled task ('Firejob 2' regardless if the Scheduled Task has been customized or left as default) nothing obvious can be found as to why the emails do not arrive.
First seen in PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange 3.0.2
Users must have quarantined spam messages to receive a digest email. Check if a user does have quarantined spam messages and if not this is expected behavior.
If the user has quarantined spam check if there is a large buildup of trigger messages in the Pickup folder and/or Mailsending folder.
This can happen if the SMTP Virtual server was reconfigured and there is a Vsi 2 folder and/or Mailsending/2 folder as well
The PureMessage configuration file will still reference the old location; you will need to modify references to the Mailsending and pickup location in the config file found here:
Note: The backslash in a path name is qualified with another backslash -- \\ -- whilst spaces appear as \s.
Restart the PureMessage service; if the trigger messages continue to build up and the configuration is pointing to the correct location, there may be a problem with the Mailsending.dll
Problems have also been seen around .bad files in the Mailsending folder. Purging this folder and then attempting to send a digest can help as well.
End user may experience some intermittent behavior with missing emails. Therefore check to see if Intelligent Message Filters are switched on via Exchange 2003/2007
Check if turning off IMF allows emails to get through. By default IMF is not switched on and has to be enabled in Exchange 2003 SP2 as per this Microsoft support article:
