Viewing the Endpoint Reputation Statuses

Viewing the endpoint reputation statuses

Go to Monitor > Endpoint Reputation > Auto Blacklist to view the current list of carrier end points (by their MSISDN, subscriber ID, or other identifier) that were caught by FortiMail for sending spam. For general procedures about how to configure endpoint reputation, see “Configuring endpoint reputation” on page 639.

If a carrier end point has attempted to deliver during the automatic blacklisting window a number of spam text messages that is greater than the automatic endpoint blacklisting threshold, FortiMail unit adds the carrier end point to the automatic endpoint black list for the duration configured in the session profile. While the carrier end point is on the automatic black list and it does not expire, all text messages or email messages from it will be rejected. For information on configuring the automatic black list window, see “Configuring the endpoint reputation score window” on page 643. For information on enabling the endpoint reputation scan and configuring the automatic black list threshold in a session profile, see “Configuring session profiles” on page 482.
