Update the URL database

Update your local URL database when you submit URLs to McAfee GTI for whitelisting or blacklisting.


  1. On the product's menu page select Statistics & Information, and then click Update URL DB.
    Note: URL database update starts only if Mail URL Reputation policy is enabled. So, before updating your URL DB, make sure your Mail URL Reputation is enabled.
  2. When Mail URL Reputation is enabled, you can click Update URL DB to trigger an on-demand URL database update.
    On selecting Update URL DB, the URL database download starts. You can check the download status of the URL database in the product log. If you click Update URL DB during the download process, a pop-up shows that the download is in progress.
