    correct, it is not possible (and never was) to scan inside an encrypted data stream. As ANY MailServer is (should) only offerening encrypted communication, the feature is useless and thus removed from the product.
    IGK is still able to scan POP3, but you don' want to use POP3 any more.

    Hello,

     

    Just as clarification -> I'm only F-Secure user (and their home solutions);

    So, it is unclear for me about certain design and view.

     

    But... my own unofficial feelings and suggestions: yes, Client Security 13.00 (13.10) not using email scanning (?!) with previous meanings. And it was (!?) always not possible to scan encrypted mails.

    Maybe it is good option to use encrypted connections and secure protocols.

    So, protection against some threats should be handled by other layers of F-Secure Client Security.

     

    And with concern about 'email' -> their F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper is a most useful option and addition to email server. And this solution (probably) much more than "dropped CS email scanning" feature. But -> I'm not really friendly with business solutions. Most likely, there will be good advice from more experienced users (or with workdays -> response from F-Secure).

     

    Thanks!
