Mail transport protection is provided by transport agent and is only available for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and later, but your Exchange Server must have the Edge Transport Server or Hub Transport Server role. This also applies to a single server installation with multiple Exchange Server roles on one computer (as long as it has the Edge or Hub Transport role).

Mail transport protection:

If you disable Enable antivirus and antispyware mail transport protection, the ESET Mail Security plug-in for Exchange server will not be unloaded from the Microsoft Exchange server process. It will only pass through the messages without scanning for viruses on the transport layer. Messages will still be scanned for viruses and spam on the database layer and existing rules will be applied.
