    yes, it does.



    as I know it scans ports income(more phisical area) and not software itself, thus it supports any email client

    Hmm, it never blocked anything in the e-mails I got and I've been using Windows Live Mail since it came.

    maybe there was nothing to block?


    It does spam filter and sends spam to Junk folder.


    (at least statistics shows how many were filtered - don't know by WLM itself(and FS IS just counts them) or by IS. For sure it counts them Smiley Very Happy

    Ah ok, no wonder I thought it did nothing as I get phishing e-mails, several each day to my mailbox. Maybe it's time to think about changing e-mail adress instead and only hand out alias adresses to companies.

    Thank you Jouni, do I need to do the same with phishing, and name it "PHISHING"?
