Mailbox protection

Integration of ESET Endpoint Antivirus with your Mailbox increases the level of active protection against malicious code in email messages.

To configure Mailbox protection, open Advanced setup > Protections > Email client protection > Mailbox protection.

Enable email protection by client plugins—When disabled, protection by email client plugins is turned off.

Select emails to scan:

  • Received email
  • Sent email

We recommend that you keep Enable email protection by client plugins enabled. Even if integration is not enabled or functional, email communication is still protected by Mail transport protection (IMAP/IMAPS and POP3/POP3S).
