Why Kaspersky Internet Security is blocking email?

by Aana Taylor Customer Support IT Service UK

The advanced generation of Kaspersky security software is Kaspersky's internet security and it is the best security suite that will provide excellent security to your device against advanced viruses and malware. It will support for scanning of the encrypted connections that include SMTP/IMAP over SSL between the mail client and the mail servers.

Although this behavior is most likely and it might occasionally go so far. Kaspersky will interfere with your mail connections, and injects itself between the mail client and mail server, and use your own certificates to secure the “last mile” of the connectivity. It will cause your mail client to complain about the invalid certificates from the mail services. There is no need to remove Kaspersky when Kaspersky Internet Security is blocking email and even you don’t need to deactivate the scanning of encrypted connections.

Reasons Mail Service Intercept in Kaspersky Internet Security

After successful installation, Kaspersky Internet Security intercepts the login credentials that your email client will send around the network to authenticate for the use of the mail services. Having done that, Kaspersky inserts the own mail scanning servers between the mail client and the Mail Delivery Agent that is part of your mail server. Kaspersky Internet Security uses its own SSL certificates to secure the “last mile” of the connectivity and the communication taking place between the mail client and the network’s mail scanning servers.

Kaspersky is acting as the mail client towards the mail servers on one hand and because of the mail delivery agent towards the mail client on the other hand. As result, the mail client will keep complaining about certificate mismatches and connection inhaling.

Troubleshoot certificate warnings because of Kaspersky Security

You basically have two options-

1. Accept Kaspersky’s SSL Certificate as valid by including the certificate to the exceptions list in the mail client; Kaspersky will be scanning the mail on their own servers so that, you can take benefit of the fill functionality scope of the Kaspersky Security software without any restrictions.
2. Deactivate Kaspersky’s Checking Activity by including your mail host to the exclusion list of Kaspersky, your mail client will communicate with the mail server without intermediaries so that whatever scanning Kaspersky wants to conduct on the mail, can take place on the local PC.
