Hello

I don't remember a CLI command to do that, but you can check Maintenance->FortiGuard->Update tab

to recover last attempt update time and results

 

Hope it helps

Where on the fortiguard website do I verify that I have the latest version?

 

Fortiguard website lists antispam DB version 98.10157, my fortimail unit has version 7.00286.

 

On my fortimail unit I checked the following:

FDN is available

Push update is available

I can ping service.fortiguard.net

I can resolve service.fortiguard.net

Using port 53

 

Searching the event log for message "spam db:yes" covering the last 31 days show only 3 entries for dates 20/07, 27/07 and 04/08. Should there not be multiple updates daily?

When I run "diagnose debug rating" I have noticed that my packet loss ratio in some cases is more than 20%.

 

Does this mean that SPAM could come through when packets are dropped because it never reached the fortiguard services to check for SPAM? Should I be concerned about the packet being dropped?
