In this group, you can configure additional actions to be applied when SpIDer Mail processes messages.
You can set the condition under which SpIDer Mail should acknowledge complex messages, whose scanning is time consuming, as unchecked. To do that, enable the option and set the maximum message scanning time. After the expiry of the specified period (by default, 250 sec.), SpIDer Mail stops scanning the message.
Enable the option if you want SpIDer Mail to scan archived files transferred via email. If necessary, enable the following options and configure scan parameters for archives:
•. If an archive size exceeds the specified value (by default, 30,720 KB), SpIDer Mail does not unpack and scan the archive.
•. If a nesting level is greater than the specified value (by default, 64), SpIDer Mail proceeds unpacking and scanning the archive until this limit is exceeded.
The following settings allow you to configure additional email scanning parameters:
•Use heuristic analysis—in this mode, are used to detect suspicious objects that are most likely infected with unknown viruses. To disable the analyzer, disable the option.
•Scan installation packages. This option is disabled by default.
