Database protection

Settings for database protection. The monitoring of database communication (reading/writing) is enabled by default.

Action to take if cleaning not possible - If the cleaning of an infected note is not possible, you can choose between four actions:

No action - Take no action on the infected content of the message.

Quarantine note - Sends the note to the quarantine ( eQuarantine.nsf by default).

Delete object - Deletes only the infected object from the note. This does not apply to rfc notes - they can only be deleted completely.

Replace content with action information - You can choose to replace the infected object with information about the infection (and the action taken) in the note. Attachment will be present in the message, but its content will be action information.

Delete note - The whole note is deleted.

Move note to trash - Infected note is placed into trash of the Notes client.


Prevent repeated scanning - Once the note has been scanned, it will not be scanned again until ESET Mail Security is updated with a new virus signature database or a rule change.

Scan OLE objects - If this option is selected, the antivirus protection will scan OLE (Object linking and embedding) objects/documents.

Max file size limit - Maximum size limit for files that will be processed by ESET Mail Security.

Databases excluded from scan - Select databases which will be completely excluded from Antivirus and antispyware scanning and from filtering by user-defined rules. Be careful about which databases you exclude because exclusions represent a potential security risk.
