    Is there a way to save Spam (white/black lists) settings?

    Is there a way to save the Eset settings?

    I ask as when I convert to Vista, it would be nice to transfer the Spam settings so that I do not have to re-teach the spam control in Windows Mail.

    Hello,

    Instructions on saving the blacklist and whitelist for ESET Smart Security's antispam module can be found in ESET Knowledgebase article #750, "How do I export my ESET Smart Security Whitelist/Blacklist to another computer?."

    To import and/or export ESET Smart Security's settings, open the ESET user inteface from the system tray notification area, press Ctrl+M to make the main menu bar visible (if it is not already so), and select Setup → Import/Export Settings… from it.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky

    This method of using a previous ESS blacklist / whitelist obviously only works if you have used ESS before. Is there any way I can actually IMPORT a blacklist / whitelist from a previous spam software into ESS? These lists are plain text files with email-addresses, 1 address per line. It's just that there are loads of them, so it would take forever to enter them all manually.

    Otherwise, such a feature would be a great addition to any future version of ESS.

    Cheers
