Long Time User but some questions please.

Hi,

Been a user for a good 20 years and love the product.

A lot of talk recently about files attached to emails that are not what they seem, e.g. pdf files that are actually executable files. Does ESET actually spot them?

If I have entered all the ports used on my email accounts in eset will it spot spam in my email client, eMclient?

Is it possible to upload a current windows defender firewall list to eset?

Many thanks and apologies if I should have split my questions into different threads.

1, Email attachments are scanned regardless of the file extension based on the actual content.

2, Antispam is supported only in Microsoft Outlook

3, By default, ESET is configured to honor permissive rules from Windows firewall. If you need other rules, you'd need to create them. I'd recommend using automatic mode with no custom rules.

Just to confirm, ESET scans say an email attachment/file that has an .pdf extension, but does it flag if it is actually it as being an executable file, with just the extension changed to fool a recipient?

If your concern is that file names are fully displayed, enable the two File Explorer options shown in the below screen shot;

ESET will detected files with double extensions only if detected as a threat.
