Server protection settings

Server protection settings are the main integration option. Click the toggle to enable or disable the integration of Mailbox database protection, Mail transport protection or DKIM signing to your Exchange Server. When enabled, you can configure detailed settings for each protection type in its respective section. You can also modify Agent priority (you must keep the ESET DKIM Agent priority position as last).


If you are running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, you can choose between Mailbox database protection and On-demand mailbox database scan; only one protection type can be active at a time. If you decide to use On-demand mailbox database scan, you must disable Mailbox database protection. Otherwise, On-demand mailbox database scan will not be available.
