For users of the spamBlocker subscription service, WatchGuard has switched to Mailshell as our new provider of spam detection technology. Mailshell scored highly in the most recent VBSpam Comparative Test, the industry’s leading independent testing program. In the testing, Mailshell’s filter accurately detected 99.84% of spam without a single false positive. This release also includes updates to the Mailshell engine based on feedback submitted after its first release with 11.7.2 for XTM appliances.

Mailshell is no good solution.. I was forced to downgrade from 11.7.2 to 11.7 because it was too false positives
Corey Nachreiner says
Andrea. The Mailshell solution is a publicly testing one that rates very well. Do know that the Mailshell engine in 11.7.2 is not the most recent one. We heard of issues with our original Mailshell release in 11.7.2. As a result, the engine in 11.6.5 and 11.3.6 is an improved one that should sort out some of the issues you are mentioning.
Very shortly, we will release 11.7.2 Update 1, and it will have the same engine update for 11.7.x users. So I would try it when that update comes out.
I was using 11.3.6 , getting too many false positives , had to downgrade back to 11.3.5 waiting for a fix since 11.7.2 update 1 is out already
We are experiencing the same issues as Raymond and are considering downgrading client firewall’s to 11.3.5 pending some sort of improvement with the new spam filtering provider.
