Why was keyword filtering dropped in Email and Server Security 14.0?
Will this feature be added again in the future?
In order to keep F-Secure ESS 14.00 on the schedule, the Keyword filtering feature was dropped as out of release scope. The feature was evaluated as the second priority and removed out of scope.
We can revisit the decision and re-implement Keywords filtering in the 15.x series in case the feedback proves it to be widely used and demanded.
that decision was bad for us!
Keyword filtering was the only reason to have FSESS onsite since November last year. "Normal" Virus and Spam filtering is done on our smart host located at our provider site. Because of our longtime successful experience with F-Secure and to better integrate with our other F-Secure infrastructure we decided to take FSESS instead of other products. Unfortunately I didn't read the release notes carefully enough and upgraded optimistically to FSESS 14.0. Now I have to downgrade to 12.12 to get filtering back again and to stay on 12.12 until hopefully FSESS 15.0 will filtering bring back again.
Please take this as a request for keyword filtering as soon as possible and communicate it with F-Secure.
