Version 15.5 E-mail Shield no longer present
« on: November 22, 2022, 10:15:59 PM »
Hi, I installed version 15.5 (6e390a8e8f05) and the Email shield is not showing up as a core shield any longer.  It was present in the old version   There is an email filtering function under "email guardian" on the main page.  Has the functionality been moved out of the "core shield" section?  The changelog mentions new features of email guardian but it doesn't mention removing the email core shield.  http://mac-av.u.avcdn.net/mac-av/10_11/AAFM/changelog.html

Below is a screenshot of the new email guardian

The screenshot below shows where the email guardian icon is on the main screen.  The second screenshot shows the email shield is missing from the core shields section.

Hello Thomas,

the Email Shield functionality is still present. You can find it now inside the Email Guardian feature. It is the "ONLY ON THIS MAC" part of the Email Guardian feature as it  processes only emails downloaded via Mail client apps on the current device.

Onboarding into the ACROSS ALL DEVICES will scan the emails directly on your mail server and flag any problematic emails right there, so all your devices should be able to see the security status of the email. It does so only for new emails that you will receive and it will not retrospectively scan your entire mailbox.

Kind regards,

Jakub
