    Hello StevenGE,

     

    Unfortunately, MAPI protocol is not supported by current versions of E-mail scanning and E-mail filtering. Malware in attachment will be detected when you try to open/save it.

    Scanning for spam is not possible at all for this protocol.

     

    Best regards,

    Vad

    I couldn't agree more, TKV. Relying on a product like PSB on the endpoint to protect users from malicious mails is far from ideal.

    A dedicated (preferably hosted) service that stops the mails reaching any part of your system is preferable by a long way.
