Email client integration

Integration of ESET NOD32 Antivirus with your email client increases the level of active protection against malicious code in email messages. If your email client is supported, integration can be enabled in ESET NOD32 Antivirus. When integrated into your email client, the ESET NOD32 Antivirus toolbar is inserted directly into the email client for more efficient email protection. Integration settings are located under Advanced setup (F5) > Web and email > Email client protection > Email client integration.

Email clients currently supported include Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail. Email protection works as a plugin for these programs. The main advantage of the plugin is that it is independent of the protocol used. When the email client receives an encrypted message, it is decrypted and sent to the virus scanner. Refer to the ESET Knowledgebase article for a complete list of supported email clients and their versions.

Disable Attachment handling optimization and Advanced email client processing if you experience a system slowdown when retrieving emails.
