1.3 Creating MetaDefender Core server profile

After installation and successful license activation MetaDefender Email Gateway Security user interface is ready to be used with full functionality.

For emails to be scanned MetaDefender Email Gateway Security needs, however, to be connected to MetaDefender Core.

Establishing this connection requires two steps:

  1. Creating a MetaDefender Core type server profile

  2. Assigning this server profile to Email Gateway Security (see 1.5 Basic security rules)

Creating Core server profile
