1and1Mail has been verified by 36 well-known antivirus software, including Kaspersky, McAfee, NOD32, Trend Micro, and BitDenfender, that it is free from any kind of virus (View Scan Report). However, Norton Antivirus may still report 1and1Mail is of some security risk and remove the installation file or execution file of 1and1Mail. It may be due to the following reasons:

1. 1and1Mail 3.3 is just released (in Mid May) and the file is very new.

2. 1and1Mail needs to connect to Internet to verify your SMTP server and send mass emails. Norton considers such kind of new program requesting Internet access as suspicious.

3. To prevent pirated version, 1and1Mail does reports your IP address and registration code to our server to verify your identity. It ensures you are using the genuine version of 1and1Mail and your money is spent at the right place. Norton may consider collecting such kind of user information as suspicious and remove the program.

Here are 4 simple steps to resolve the problem:

1. Right click the Norton system tray icon and select “View Recent History“.


2. Find the Quarantined 1and1Mail execution file or installation file (edm free.exe, edm personal.exe, edm business.exe, or edm ultimate.exe). Click “Restore & Options“.

3. Select “Restore & exclude this file”.

4. Click “Yes’

"Will I get blocked by my ISP/ESP if I send 1,000 emails per day?""How many emails can I send out per day?"… These are the frequently questions that 1and1Soft receives almost every day. Most of these customers are seeking the cheapest way to send out mass emails, and using free email services from Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail.

The answer is: it depends.

Even though, officially, most email service providers have announced the daily quota, or sending limit of their SMTP server, the actual number may still vary by each email account's reputation score.

The sender score / reputation score is usually calculated by the bounce-back rate, spam rate imposed by the recipients and keywords filtering. If you send out too many emails within a short period of time that contains a lot of spam sensitive keywords, your reputation score is at risk. Next time, your ESP will limit your sending quota and lower your email deliverability.

In 1and1Mail, you can easily control how many emails you can send out per day. When you reach the limit, 1and1Mail will automatically stop sending, and resume after 24 hours. Try to send fewer emails per day at the beginning. When you gradually build up your reputation with your ESP, you can increase the number later.
