    Default Spotlight and Symantec Antivirus stuck on Zimbra?

    Hello,
    I have a user using Zimbra Desktop for Macintosh version 7.1.4.
    User is running OS X 10.6.8 with latest updates.
    When user logs in and sometimes during the day 2 processes slow here machine to a crawl:
    SymAutoProtect
    mds
    When I sampled each process I saw lines pointing to "mail". The only mail she uses is Zimbra...
    So my question to you is are then known issues with Apple Spotlight indexing Zimbra Desktop and/or are there issues with Symantec AntiVirus 12.1 scanning Zimbra desktop files/folders?
    Thanks.

    You don't need any indexing system to index the ZD folders, there's a search function withing ZD.

    Using any A/V with ZD is not usually a good idea. Disable the indexing and stop the A/V from scanning the ZD folders and see if the 'problem' goes away.
