E-mail spam gone?

In F-Secure Safe I use to be able to filter spam e-mail messages in Outlook but now, for months actually, I can't find this feature in my F-Secure Safe version. Has this feature been removed from F-Secure Safe?

 

Details of my version are the following:
Antivirus program 17.193 build 128
Online security 2.193 build 6267
Ultralight 2.1 build 455
User Interface 20.00 build 332

    Hello,

     

    Not an official point, of course, but it was with F-Secure SAFE technology preview/beta (FS Protection) listed under release-notes:

    https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Home-Security/FS-Protection-PC-Release-179/m-p/89473

    Scanning of POP3 e-mail traffic (both malware and spam scanning). Thus, "Spam filtering" settings page has been removed and the "Remove harmful e-mail attachments" setting has been removed from Virus protection settings.

    Not sure about abilities to get release-notes for stable solution (except that it released from beta-releases), but with my own experience during Upgrade from previous stable build to current:

     

    maybe it was listed under "what's new"-page (or not?!). So, anyway good to get official words.

     

    I decided to create this reply just as temporary information!

     

    Thanks!

    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my reply. I'm only F-Secure user (their home solutions).

     

    This feature indeed removed with latest (currently) available stable F-Secure SAFE builds.

    Partly possible to read explanation (or reasons) with next reply:

    https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Protection/F-Secure-Computer-Protection/m-p/98354#M659

     

    Where discussed business-solution... but I able to think that official statement can be valid for home solutions too (with some differences).

     

    Thanks!

  • Hi and thanks for you reply.

    This is an explanation indeed! It would be nice if someone from F-Secure officially acknowledged that this feature is also removed from F-Secure Safe as well.

    Thanks

    I'm only user of F-S apps.
    I read this case and I began to think, that in gmail (Google) is spam working.
    But the protocol is not POP3.
    Perhaps this spam filtering is a feature of gmail?
    For your information, if you are able to use gmail.
