Concerning to Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.5 for Lotus Domino (version 5.5.1382 and above)

key file is your personal “key”. It keeps all Kaspersky Anti-Virus information, such as: 

    • distributor's coordinates (the name of the firm and its contact information) 
    • information about support (who and where provides it) 
    • the date of the key release 
    • the name and number of the license 
    • components functionality table o license validity 

There are two kinds of key files: 

  • Commercial key file 

commercial key file activates Kaspersky Lab's program products purchased legally for their further usage. When purchasing the product pay attention to its validity period. 

Commercial key file is valid during: 

    • 1 year 
    • 2 years 
    • Any period (during Kaspersky Lab special actions) 

When the license expires, the product functions, but does not filter mail traffic. 

Users of commercial key files have the right for full technical support provided by Kaspersky Lab: either by phone or via the HelpDesk form

  • Trial key file 

Trial key file is used to try Kaspersky Lab products during a fixed period of time. Trial keys are granted by Kaspersky Lab free. 

Trial key file is valid during: 

    • 15 days 
    • 30 days 
    • Other period (according to the arrangement with Kaspersky Lab) 

When the trial key expires Kaspersky Anti-Virus downloads but does not filter the mail traffic. 

The users of trial key files have the right for limited technical support provided by Kaspersky Lab by filling in the HelpDesk form only. 

Once received, the key file should be saved on a separate drive (disc, flash, CD) to be restored when needed. 

Do not lose the key file as Kaspersky Anti-Virus does not filter the mail traffic without it. 


To know what trial key file is installed, on the server console run the following command: 

tell kavmailmonitor keyinfo 


To add a new key file, on the server console run the commands: 

tell kavmailmonitor quit

load kavmailmonitor [PATH_TO_KEY]

where [PATH_TO_KEY] – is the exact path to the file. 

You can install two keys: active and reserve. Active key is the key installed at the moment and which provides the application full functionality. Only one key with the active status can be installed at a time. The reserve key is activated automatically once the active key expires. 

To install a reserve key run the command: 

tell kavmailmonitor addreservekey [PATH_TO_KEY], where [PATH_TO_KEY] is the exact path to the reserve file.
