Profile manager

Profile manager is used in two places within ESET Mail Security:

On-demand computer scan

Your preferred scan parameters can be saved for future scanning. We recommend that you create a different profile (with various scan targets, scan methods and other parameters) for each regularly used scan.

To create a new profile, open the Advanced setup window (F5) and click Computer > On-demand computer scan and then Edit next to List of profiles. The Selected profile drop-down menu that lists existing scan profiles. To help you create a scan profile to fit your needs, see the ThreatSense engine parameters setup section for a description of each parameter of the scan setup.


The profile editor in the Update section allows users to create new update profiles. It is only necessary to create custom update profiles if your computer uses multiple means to connect to update servers.
