If you receive large amounts of unwanted messages (spam), we recommend that you enable the Anti-Spam component and set the Optimal security level for it.

This functionality is unavailable if Kaspersky Small Office Security is installed on a file server.

To enable Anti-Spam and set the Optimal security level:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click Settings button in the lower part of the main window.

    This opens the Settings window.

  3. Select the Privacy settings section.
  4. Select the Anti-Spam component.

    The window displays the settings of Anti-Spam.

  5. Enable Anti-Spam using the switch.
  6. In the Security level section, make sure that the Optimal security level is set.

The following limitations apply to Anti-Spam:

  • The Anti-Spam component can only analyze messages that are fully downloaded from the mail server, regardless of the protocol used.
  • The Anti-Spam component does not check mail transferred using MAPI protocol.

The Anti-Spam component is disabled when you upgrade to a more recent application version. You can enable the component manually.

In some versions of the application, to enable the Anti-Spam component, you must accept the terms of the Statement regarding data processing for Anti-Spam.
