Integration with email clients

Integration of ESET Internet Security with email clients increases the level of active protection against malicious code in email messages. If your email client is supported, integration can be enabled in ESET Internet Security. When integration is activated, the ESET Internet Security toolbar is inserted directly into the email client, allowing for more efficient email protection. Integration settings are available through Setup > Advanced setup > Web and email > Email client protection > Email clients.

Email clients that are currently supported include Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail. For a complete list of supported email clients and their versions, refer to the following ESET Knowledgebase article.

Select the check box next to Disable checking upon inbox content change if you are experiencing a system slowdown when working with your email client. This can occur when retrieving email from the Kerio Outlook Connector Store.

Even if integration is not enabled, email communication is still protected by the email client protection module (POP3, IMAP).
