Create new list

You can create a new list in addition to the predefined Address lists. The list will include the desired URL addresses/domain masks that will be blocked, allowed or excluded from checking. When creating a new list, specify the following:

Address list type - choose the type (Excluded from checking, Blocked or Allowed) from the drop-down list.

List name - specify the name of the list. This field will be grayed out when editing one of the three predefined lists.

List description - type a short description for the list (optional). Will be grayed out when editing one of three predefined list.

List active - use the switch to deactivate the list. You can activate it later when required.

Notify when applying - if you want to be notified when a particular list is used in evaluation of an HTTP site that you visited.

note_icon_example EXAMPLE

A notification will be issued if a website is blocked or allowed because it is included in the list of blocked or allowed addresses. The notification will contain the name of the list containing the specified website.

Only custom address lists can be removed.

ESET Mail Security enables user to block access to specified websites and prevent the Internet browser from displaying their content. Furthermore, it allows user to specify addresses, which should be excluded from checking. If the complete name of the remote server is unknown, or the user wishes to specify a whole group of remote servers, so called masks can be used to identify such a group. The masks include the symbols ? and *:

use ? to substitute a symbol

use * to substitute a text string

note_icon_example EXAMPLE

*.c?m applies to all addresses where the last part begins with the letter c, ends with the letter m and contains an unknown symbol in between them (.com, .cam, etc.).

A leading *. sequence is treated specially if used at the beginning of a domain name. First, the * wildcard cannot represent a slash character ('/') in this case. This is to avoid circumventing the mask, for example the mask *.domain.com will not match http://anydomain.com/anypath#.domain.com (such a suffix can be appended to any URL without affecting the download). And second, the *. also matches an empty string in this special case. This is to make it possible to match the whole domain including any subdomains using a single mask. For example the mask *.domain.com also matches http://domain.com. Using *domain.com would be incorrect, as that would also match http://anotherdomain.com.

address_list_types_add_mask

When you select Enter multiple values, you can add multiple file extensions delimited by new lines, commas or semicolons. When multiple selection is enabled, addresses will be shown in the list.

Import - import a text file with URL addresses (separate values with a line break, for example *.txt using encoding UTF-8).
