F-Secure Internet Security 2015 and harmful e-mail attachments in Windows 10 Maill app

Hey!

 

I have F-Secure Internet Security 2015, and in its settings  "Remove harmful e-mail attachments" checked.

 

Does it work with the Mail app that comes preinstalled with Windows 10, are the attachments automatically scanned/removed in the e-mails i receive with the aforementioned app?

Hi Gary,

 

Apologies for the late reply. Currently the harmful attachment filtering is not fully compatible with Windows 10 mail app.

Then again, the feature anyway supports only non-encrypted POP3/SMTP e-mail accounts.

Yeah, i was just wondering because the Mail app isn't really a full fledged mail client like Microsoft Outlook for example (in which i have seen the FS protection in action, cleaning attachments).. previously at home i just used webmail so i never had use for the feature before, but since i installed Windows 10 i switched on to the Mail app.
