Server protection settings

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


If you are running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or 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 will need to disable integration of Mailbox database protection. Otherwise On-demand mailbox database scan will not be available.
