By default, VIPRE Email Security will utilize an Access Database which has a 2gb size limit. If this limit is reached, the reporting features and pie charts in the VIPRE Email Security Console will stop functioning until the database is purged.

Changing the purging period for VIPRE Email Security's Access Database:

  1. Open the VIPRE Email Security Console
  2. Under Settings select Databases
  3. Select Configure

Organizations with heavy mailflow are recommended to change the retention period to 30 days as Access Databases have a 2GB limit.

Note:  If you are exceeding the size limits of the database too often we recommend using an SQL Database.
