Yash Rana says in a Fortinet FortiMail review
Manager IT at OTE
I think the spamming feature is very valuable. One of the features of FortiMail is the sandbox. If any suspicious or malicious thing is detected, it uploads to the FortiMail, and then to the database, and then it's checked. Once it's confirmed that the mail is good content, then it's moved inside and forwarded to its destination. So the sandboxing is a really valuable feature. View full review »

Group IT Manager at Malia Group
This a user-friendly solution. Troubleshooting is very simple because you can see where the email was not delivered and why it would be considered as spam. For the IT team, it is important, because when they are asked by management why their email was not sent or why was this email that was sent to me was considered as spam, they have the details that are needed to explain why. It is much better than IronPort for Cisco and Websense. For now, as per our experience with FortiMail in handling a large number of emails and spams as well, in the past three years, we have been protected and saved from any attacks from the outside. This is one of the main reasons we will continue to use FortiMail. View full review »

Information Security Analyst at a healthcare company
One of the nicest things is that parts of it are highly intuitive. For instance, black-listing, white-listing, and things of that nature are very easy to do and they're very intuitive. You wouldn't even need any training to be able to perform those actions straight out-of-the-box. Even though it's not perfect, it has the IMS engine, Intelligent Multi-Scan engine, and it does a good job, right out-of-the-box, of blocking the vast majority of things that should be blocked. Again, it's not 100 percent, but out-of-the-box I didn't have to touch it, I didn't have to tune it, I didn't have to tweak it. I believe it leverages the threat-intelligence database and does what it needs to do in making sure that the bad stuff stays out and virtually all of the good stuff makes it through.

Presales Engineer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
For me, one of the most valuable features would be that I want to block attachments by extension type in Office, but it is not possible using SonicWall Email Security — at least not in any solution that I have found. The SonicWall Firewall device does not block all macros with the version or configuration I have. This is a problem. But SonicWall support said that new features will be coming in September or October to resolve the issue. It will come, but I don't know exactly when and I have not seen it. So this will be the most valuable for me when it is available. View full review »

IT Manager at TAP30
The most valuable aspect of Sophos Appliance is just as an anti-spam protection layer. It provides protection from spam, fishing, and from receiving harmful emails that contain things like trojans or ransomware and it checks all attachments safely in real-time. This is most useful for us. View full review »

We have used the solution as a mandatory tool in our infrastructure. It's kept some of the spam email and stuff like that out. As a security layer, we've have added Fortimail for security as the mail gateway. View full review »

General Manager at 3R Technologie
The solution is very easy to use, especially the cloud version which is very, very simple. There are some good templates already built-in, so you can just select the template, and you will get all the necessary functionality. The only one thing you have to do is point all your traffic to the cloud. View full review »

The most valuable features are really the same as our primary use for the product: intelligent handling of potential email attacks and offloading or load-balancing. This effectively protects the organization from malicious attacks. View full review »

Huthaifa Smadi says in a Fortinet FortiMail review
Group Senior Network Administrator at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
One of the features I like the best and find most valuable is the gray list feature. You can mark a trusted domain to reduce interruptions and other domains you are not sure that you can trust you put in a gray list. The mechanism of this feature can greatly decrease the number of spam emails and helps determine which are under more scrutiny, but it is also not a total block. You can put domains as blacklisted which just blocks delivery. This mechanism and level of control are awesome in FortiMail. View full review »

We really like the logging system in this solution. It is easy to track down email messages that a user has misplaced, or didn't realize that they got. Perhaps it came in but was wrong because the sender had the wrong email alias, for example. You can track down and find things like this. View full review »
