  • The configuration is easy enough.

  • Spam detection is fine.
  • Malware and virus detection is very good.
  • We had many false positive.
  • Needs a lot of tuning.
I don't think that FortiMail is the best option as an email server, but for spam and malware filtering, this is very good. It can be integrated with many other Fortinet products, including online services. It doesn't add too much latency since the process is very fast, and the upgrades are seamless.
