    We are looking at enhancements in supporting better DKIM and other forms of signed email to verify the authenticity of such messages. Such frameworks are there to identify the message authenticity, but can still lead to malicious and spammy emails to be sent. GFI MailEssentials cannot simply let through an email which is signed and authenticated with such forms of authenticity.

    As for GFI MailEssentials being updated, yes it is and we plan to have the next version released in January 2017.

    GFI MailEssentials spam/malware prevention is not enhanced with new builds but also in the daily updates that are essential to the product functionality as well as the automatic patches introducing minor enhancements and fixes. Such daily updates are there to keep your email stream secure.

    +1 for DKIM and DMARC support. Nowadays this is a must for an anti-spam solution. The last major update of GFI Mailessentials dates 6 months back, I am starting to wonder whether this product is still being actively maintained? Our maintenance renewal is coming up in a few months, hopefully we won't have to switch to another solution...

    Now for DKIM support we must use 3-rd party tools on Exchange or setup linux mail gateway. As AntiSpam solution DKIM *must* be included.

    I'm currently struggling to get mail through your spam product to a reseller we deal with because we're using Google Apps. DKIM is enabled for Google Apps and enabling it in your filter would ensure that any legitimate messages from us would be delivered without issue.

    When will this option be available? More and more mailservers use this mechanism. It makes mail more reliable.
