ESET Mail Security for FreeBsd

Recommended Posts


I installed ESET Mail Security (esets.i386.fbs9.tgz.bin) at my FreeBsd 9.3 machine. It should work with sendmail. But after email scanned it doesn't save any emails to the /var/mail/_user_ file. Even clean emails.

And there aren't any errors in log file:

Sendmail without antivirus works fine.

How can I resolve this problem?

We have an Online Help topic related to configuring Mail Security with Sendmail, can you review that and see if that helps:


Thank you for your answer.

I configured my Sendmail and Eset according that manual. Unfortunately it didn't resolve my problem with email saving.

Do you have any other idea how can I fix it?


P.S. I added full log to my first post. It wasn't complete before.

Some update to my previous message.

At first I set up Sendmail and Eset only for "Inbound email message scanning". This configuration of Sendmail doesn't save emails. 

Now I set it up using "Bi-directional email message scanning" and now Sendmail can save emails.

I have one more question. How can I set up Eset to redirect messages with spam or virus to some mailbox?

Afaik, you can set up notifications of spam and threat messages to send to a mailbox but I'm not sure it can redirect spam- or threat-flagged messages to another mailbox.
