    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in Azure VM Eset extension - why bother?   
    I'm trying to see the advantages of installing ESET using the extension...
    When deploying infrastructure using Resource Manager templates, you can reference extensions to be deployed to a VM as part of the whole process.

    If you want to install to one machine, manual install may be easier.

    Extension management interface is not very fancy, e.g. when the extension needs to reboot after upgrade/uninstall, there is no way to indicate that. It will either wait or force reboot – what can be a surprising action for admin.


    Also the Azure Advisor says that there is no Endpoint Protection on the VM (said before upgraded to v7)..
    Detection of Endpoint protection is unrelated to whether the product was installed as extension or not. Currently, MS does not recognize ESET as Endpoint protection. Don't know why, we are trying to reach them.

    Now v7 is here and there is no way (that I can see) to use the Azure interface to upgrade Eset file security on the VM.
    Upgrade: Extension management system does not do major version upgrades. No way to do that automatically.

    Install: Currently, clean install of v7 can be done only via PowerShell, because we need to update the portal UI to reference new major version (it references v6 now). We are working on this with MS right now, but as it is handled via emails, it takes time.

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in Export all settings for Mail transport protection rules   
    Hi Dean,
    We will add import/export options to lists in rules (just like in antispam filtering lists) - these options will be available after ERA configuration module update.
    In the meantime - what is your use case?
    It's also possible to export the configuration directly in product - this will give you an XML file. This file can be modified - e.g. you can remove everything except rules, modify the list and then import the rules on other machine etc.
    It looks like you are trying to do some antispam filtering - if you have problems with antispam detection rate, you can submit samples to ESET (https://support.eset.com/kb141/#spam) or contact customer care

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in EMSX V7: Database scan could not be started   
    We managed to reproduce the issue - the problem is that Database scan task scheduled in policy is not created correctly.
    A workaround exists:
    When you create a scheduled Database scan task in ESMC, click edit and go through the wizard again. When you click finish the task should be saved correctly.
    The issue will be fixed in configuration module for ESMC

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in Can Mail security deal with display name spoofing   
    Hi Richard,
    EMSX v7 has a "From header - display name" condition in transport rules so you can create a rule like this:
    From header - display name contains one of {My User1, My User2..}
    Sender's IP address is not {list of my IPs}
    (or Internal message is false)

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in XmonSmtpAgent: Failed to process ON END OF HEADERS event   
    Hi davidenco,
    The error in logs is caused by an exception while parsing "Received:" headers. We will address the issue in next hotfix of EMSX.
    Could you PM me a procdump file(s) capturing the exception? It would help us to track it down:
    procdump -ma -e 1 -f "nullreferenceexception" edgetransport.exe

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in Antispam cloud connectivity protection status has been removed   
    it looks like the mail server had limited connectivity to ESET antispam cloud services (already discussed here).

    filips gave kudos to Marcos in Spam protection module is only connected to the cloud to a limited extent   
    Not sure what the error reads in English but I guess it could be caused by the fact that ESET's servers providing antispam services are inaccessible. Check https://support.eset.com/kb332 for a list of servers that should be reachable from the mail server.

    filips received kudos from Peter Randziak in Delegated access for a whole domain name in quarantine access rights   
    unfortunately, this is not supported. Quarantine web access rights support only administration of whole quarantine and delegated access to one mailbox. Though you can assign the access rights to user group as well, you would still have to create one access right record for each mailing list.
    I filed an improvement to add delegation to domain/multiple mailboxes (e.g. wildcard support).
