Scanning of outbound email messages

Outbound email message scanning is performed during the transfer of email messages between the local MUA and the MTA.

Configure ESET Mail Security for outbound email message scanning by running the following script:


Select the SMTP install option. This will set the esets_smtp module to listen on a predefined port and redirect applicable IP packets. Check the newly added firewall rule to see if any changes are necessary.

Note that the installer backs up all modified configuration files and can display every command that it will execute after your approval. The backup configuration files should be reimplemented after uninstalling. Detailed steps for all possible scenarios are described in ESETS setup and configuration topic of this documentation.
