Product activation

When installation is complete, you will be prompted to activate your product.


Select one of the available methods to activate ESET Mail Security. See How to activate ESET Mail Security for more information.

After you've successfully activated ESET Mail Security, the main program window will open and display your current status in the Monitoring page. Some attention may be required initially, for example, you'll be asked if you want to be part of ESET LiveGrid®.


The main program window will also display notifications about other items, such as system updates (Windows Updates) or virus signature database updates. When all items that require attention are resolved, the monitoring status will turn green and display the status Maximum protection.
