Question

I have performed a set of tests for known vulnerabilities in mail clients which I want my mail server to block. Why does GMS fail to block all these messages?

Answer

GMS can correctly block against all the tests in the GFI vulnerability
list.

GMS as shipped is secure and does not have vulnerabilities. Whether or
not the issues raised by GFI are vulnerabilities are debatable so Gordano
gives you the choice of whether (or not) to deny some messsages. However,
we take the attitude that an informed decision should be made about each
issue taking into account the pitfalls and benefits.

The “See Also” section lists links to articles on each of the GFI tests, which give an explanation
and details of how you can set GMS to stop such messages should you choose to.
