Hi,

 

you need to create your own filter rules to move the mails to Junk or else. F-Secure can only add a X-header.

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.

Re: F-Secure and Windows Live Mail

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"?
