    (NOD32) appends its signature to all received emails as it checks them.
    I am using a spam filtering programme called Spam Bully and it has the option to report spam emails to ISP's etc.
    The consequence of the NOD32 signature is that, as well as picking up the senders details, "Spam Bully" also picks up the NOD32 website address from its signature and then includes it in the report - so I can't use the report feature without reporting eset every time!
    Is there any way to remove the eset.com link from the signature?
    Is it only applicable to the trial version?
    If not what is the best way for me to proceed to be able to report spam but not report my AV software provider with every report? I know you can switch it off altogether but I don't really want to do that - I just want to remove the link.
    [Edit]Actually it doesn't seem that I can switch it off at all![/Edit]

    To stop outgoing signatures being added with Microsoft Outlook which utilizes EMON, see the following screenshot.

    Cheers :D

    Hi Blackspear. Yeah I have mine setup like that with IMON but then the people that recieve the email aren`t aware if it`s safe.

    Never ever rely on those notifications, I have received hundreds and hundreds of infected email with “this email has been scanned by XYZ anti-virus”...

    The only notification to trust, is your Nod32 one when it is inbound.

    Cheers :D

    I'm using Outlook (not express) and it's only the www.eset.com link that I want to remove - I like to see and send the signature that shows that the email has been NOD32 checked.
    I can understand the website link being in the trial version, (which is what mine is), but I don't think it should be in a paid version.
    So is there anyway to remove the link?

    Well that`s a good way to be but people would still like to see both. I paid for a product and it has a self injected link in the email. So if I`m advertising for NOD at the same time shouldn`t it be free? :)

    Cheers back :)

    It's in both the Trial and Commercial version, and as far as I am aware there is no means of removing just the link while leaving the checked notification. All or nothing is the only choice available...

    Cheers :D

    Hmmm - time for an Eset rethink?

    Actually the "Notifications" setup in EMON seem to indicate that it would be applied only to infected emails, whereas it automatically adds it to all, even if set to infected emails only.

    I did notice this when I was testing options, so it appears to be a bug... I have reported it to Eset.

    Cheers :D
