Address lists

To protect against unsolicited emails, ESET Internet Security enables you to classify email addresses in address lists.

To edit address lists, open Advanced setup (F5) > Web and email > Email client protection > Antispam address lists, and click Edit next to User's address list or Global address list.

Allow - Addresses that are considered safe and from whom you want to receive messages.

Block - Addresses that are considered unsafe/spam and from whom you do not want to receive messages.

Exception - Addresses that are always checked for spam and that may be spoofed and used for sending spam.
