With McAfee email protection software, users get an all-around protection against viruses, spam, data leakage, and other messaging threats. Most of the users are not aware of the fact that email gateways could be one of the easiest paths for viruses to reach a users mailbox. Therefore, to fight against such risks, McAfee activate helps users to build an extra layer of protection.
As the email gateway keeps a track of all the incoming mails, it typically processes the emails such as archiving it or filtering spam. Once the mail passes the gateway, it overtakes the mail to the mail server that delivers the mail to its respective receiver. However, McAfee activate keeps the track of all the received email in the synchronized email box and block maximum malicious emails.
Nevertheless, to get this service, a user must configure McAfee email protection hybrid scanning system on the email gateway. To know how to configure the email protection, make sure you have an active account on www.mcafee.com/activate along with an active McAfee activate subscription. If you already have this, you are entitled to execute the steps below.
