In this guide we will walk you through the purchase (in AMP) and activation (in cPanel) of a McAfee Email Protection Pack. Here is a link to a helpful article that explains what McAfee Email protection is, and what it does

How to Purchase McAfee Email Protection from AMP:

Before the McAfee Email Protection can be used, it must be purchased. The steps are outlined below.
  1. Login to the Account Management Panel (AMP).
  2. On the left, click the Other option under Additional Services.
  3. Click the drop-down box labeled "Select Domain (# slots)...," and choose the domain you want to protect from the list. Then click the Protect Domain button.

  5. Under the Additional Services heading, click the Protection Pack you want to purchase. Available options are:

    • Add McAfee 1 Email Protection Pack
    • Add McAfee 5 Email Protection Pack
    • Add McAfee 10 Email Protection Pack

    In my tests, I am selecting Add McAfee 5 Email Protection Pack.

  6. In the field to the right of "McAfee Contact Email Address," enter an email address that is not hosted with us, such as a Yahoo, Google Mail, or Hotmail, which are all free. Then choose your payment method, agree to the terms of service, then click the Submit button.

    You will then see a notification stating "Your order has been completed. Please read through our McAfee Email Protection Quick Start Guide to get up and running. You can always find the link on your Account & Billing Detail page if you forget to bookmark."

Activating the McAfee Email protection:

After you have purchased McAfee Email Protection, it must be turned on in the cPanel. Below is a walk-through.
  1. Login to your cPanel.
  2. Click the McAfee Email Protection button in the Mail Section.
    Selecting McAfee in cPanel
  3. Click the drop-down box labeled "Select Domain (# slots)...," and choose the domain you want to protect from the list. Then click the Protect Domain button.

    This may take several minutes to complete.

    You will then see the domain listed on the bottom of the page:

Congratulations, now you know how to purchase and activate McAfee Email Protection!

Hello Ian,

I just spoke with the development team and it looks like the McAfee Email Protection hasn't been added to our new AMP yet.

For the time being please submit a ticket, call, or chat with us and we'd be glad to get this protection added to your account.

Hello Cally,

The domain protection subscription should be quick. If you are having issues with it, there may be something specific in your account causing a delay. You will want to contact our Live Support team to take a look at your specific account.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
