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.

Write scan result to infected note

In case of infected note, scan result information is written into the note headers (X-EsetId, X-EsetResult).


Encrypted emails and documents are not scanned.

Ignore emails accessed via IMAP older than (days)

Only newer attachments will be scanned. If a message is older than specified number of days, it will be ignored while being accessed. Default number of days is 7.
