Fortimail license expiration

Hello guys,

 

What will happen to my fortimail once licenses expire?

Will it be able still to send/relay emails?

What about protection, antispam, content and URL filtering?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @vvanja 

Please follow the document - https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/7.4.1/administration-guide/289376/license-expiration

Email Filtering

Spam filtering stops working, as it queries the FortiGuard spam filtering server in real-time to check spammer IP addresses and emails (except those that are locally configured), phishing URLs, spam URLs, spam email checksums, and spam submissions. Anti-spam signatures are not updated.

Profile options based on local spam filtering continue to work.

For more information, see Email filter.

 

Best regards,

Erlin

When your license expires, you will still be able to send/receive emails, but no protection will be provided. Traffic will pass unscanned

Hello

I guess FortiGuard scan will be disabled and signatures will not be updated anymore.

But what about basic scans, like SPF, AV, DKIM and so?
