Setting ESETS to send email notifications on virus detection

Important: This feature is available in ESETS 4.0.21 and later.

Notification email of virus detection can be enabled using the av_mail_notified_users option in the [global] section of the ESETS configuration file. Threat notifications are not handled by Scheduler.

For more information please refer to the esets_daemon(8) man page.

Important: The mail notification script is located in:
@ETCDIR@/scripts/mail_notification_script

Use the following syntax to simulate a scenario, if a.com is specified in the sender address or recipient address of a detected virus mail, ESETS sends threat notifications to the administrator of the a.com domain (the same for b.com):

av_mail_notified_users = "a.com:admin@a.com:b.com:admin@b.com"
