Jump to solution

Has MacAfee completely stopped providing the update for anti spam cloud lookup,  anti-spam rule etc. I know its EOL and the product no longer exists but we were able to get updates before. While testing its says it cannot connect to the server. mcafee1.PNGmcafee2.PNG

Hi @Former Member 

well, as You know EoL of the EMail Gateway was long announced, and since 11th January 2021 this takes effect. Sad enough, but this is why there is no need to supply updates as McAfee cannot support it any longer.

Concerning Your question: You may continue to use MEG for Policy based Email Routing, or Antispoofing, but in Terms of Spamdetection the results will be getting worse as time goes by.
Antivirus, GTI and ATD is still working, but You will also loose this functionality sooner or later as McAfee does not need to pay any attention to MEG in terms of compatibility any more.

Hi Team,

 

No, MEG will not get any further updates from McAfee anti-spam servers.

Thanks for the update. Does this mean that MEG 7.6 is of no use from now on as it cannot connect to the anti spam server and all the spam rules and updates will not be updated.
