Unable to open items in mailbox

We had an issue where we were unable to open any new or old mail in any user’s mailbox.

We then found that the antivirus software was reloaded on the Exchange servers and no exclusions where set. After stopping the antivirus software’s services we were able to open any mail as per usual.

The exclusions where setup and services started.
