    You mean for spam and antivirus scaning of the e-mails for an client?

    Yes that is what I mean.

  • 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"?
