E-mail spam gone?

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

Re: E-mail spam gone?

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

@georgek

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.
