About the Outlook-Add-In

With the Outlook Add-In, Hornetsecurity provides you with an interface for the services Spam and Malware Protection and Archiving.

You can maintain your usual working interface with the Outlook-Add-In and do not have to login at the Hornetsecurity Control Panel.

We recommend 365 Total Protection Customers to use the Hornetsecurity Outlook Add-in instead (see About Hornetsecurity Outlook Add-in in the Hornetsecurity Outlook Add-in manual).

You can use following actions from Outlook directly:

  • Reporting spam mails
  • Reporting Infomails
  • Create deny and allow lists for senders
  • Mark emails as private
  • Post-Archiving Emails
  • Look at the email archive
  • Request quarantine report
  • Encryption and Signing of Emails

Due to the direct connection to the archive you can search emails from your archive in Outlook, answer and forward them as if they would lay locally in your postbox.


You can use the functions of the Outlook-Add-In without internet connection. Your requests will be processed the next time you connect to the internet.
