User's address list in antispam protection enables you to add email addresses or domains as Blocked. Blocked email addresses or domains are considered unsafe or associated with spam. Depending on your configuration, messages from these email addresses are automatically re-directed into a spam folder.

Version 15.1 and earlier users

Upgrade your ESET product to the latest version.

In the latest version of ESET Windows home products, the User's Whitelist, Blacklist, and Exceptions list are merged into the User's address list. When creating a rule, you can select from the following options:

  • Allow (Whitelist) – Addresses that are considered safe and from whom you want to receive messages.
  • Block (Blacklist) – Addresses that are considered unsafe and from whom you do not want to receive messages.
  • Exception (Exception List) – Addresses that may be spoofed and used for sending spam.
