Outlook Express and Windows Mail toolbar

Outlook Express and Windows Mail protection works as a plug-in module. After ESET Endpoint Security is installed, this toolbar containing the antivirus/antispam protection options is added to Outlook Express or Windows Mail:

Spam – Marks chosen messages as spam. After marking, a "fingerprint" of the message is sent to a central server storing spam signatures. If the server receives more similar "fingerprints" from several users, the message will be classified as spam in the future.

Not spam – Marks chosen messages as not spam.

Spam address – Adds a new sender address to the Blacklist. All messages received from the list will be automatically classified as spam.


Beware of spoofing – forging a sender's address on email messages to mislead email recipients into reading and responding.

Trusted address – Adds a new sender address to the Whitelist. All messages received from addresses in the Whitelist will never be automatically classified as spam.

ESET Endpoint Security – Click on icon opens the main program window of ESET Endpoint Security.

Rescan messages – Enables you to launch email checking manually. You can specify messages that will be checked and you can activate rescanning of received email. For more information see Email client protection.
