Question / Problem

I am running SmartPOP2Exchange v7.0.3.396.SPAMD.EXE is currently running and it is using over 100MB of RAM on my server. I don 't use the anti-spam features of SmartPOP2Exchange, and all of the tick-boxes under Settings -> Spam Filter are unticked.Can I safely kill SPAMD.EXE? Even better, is it possible to PREVENT spamd.exe from even being loaded by SmartPOP2Exchange if the Spam settings are all disabled?

Answer / Solution

If you really don 't need/use the SpamAssassin of SmartPOP2Exchange (or the Exchange ServerToolbox if installed also) then you simply can stop the " SpamdServiceControl" server in windows services and set its start type to manual.
