Scanning emails in Microsoft Office Outlook
January 10, 2024
During installation of Kaspersky Security, the Mail Anti-Virus extension is embedded into Microsoft Office Outlook. It allows you to open the Mail Anti-Virus settings from inside Microsoft Office Outlook, and to specify at what moment email messages are to be scanned for viruses and other malware. The Mail Anti-Virus extension for Microsoft Office Outlook can scan incoming and outgoing messages that are transmitted via the POP3, SMTP, NNTP, and IMAP protocols.
You can configure the settings for the Mail Anti-Virus extension in the Light Agent for Windows policy using Kaspersky Security Center or in Microsoft Office Outlook.
Mail Anti-Virus settings can be configured directly in Microsoft Office Outlook if the Additional: Microsoft Office Outlook extension check box is selected in the Light Agent for Windows policy properties or in the local interface of Light Agent for Windows.
In Microsoft Office Outlook, incoming messages are first scanned by Mail Anti-Virus (if the POP3 / SMTP / NNTP / IMAP traffic check box is selected in the Light Agent policy properties or in the local interface of Light Agent) and then scanned by the Mail Anti-Virus extension for Microsoft Office Outlook. Outgoing messages are first scanned by the Mail Anti-Virus extension for Microsoft Office Outlook, and then scanned by Mail Anti-Virus.
