Protocols and actions

In an email filtering profile, there are sections for SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols. In each section, you can set an action to either discard, tag, or pass the log for that protocol.

CLI Example:

config smtp set log enable set action tag

end

Actions available for each protocol:

Protocol Available action
SMTP Pass: Allow spam email to pass through.
Tag: Tag spam email with configured text in the subject or header.
Discard: Discards (blocks) spam email.
POP3 & IMAP MAPI: Pass: Allow spam email to pass through.
Tag: Tag spam email with configured text in the subject or header.
Pass: Allow spam email to pass through.
Discard: Discards (blocks) spam email.

MAPI email filtering

MAPI is a proprietary protocol from Microsoft. It uses HTTPS to encapsulate email requests and responses between Microsoft Outlook clients and Microsoft Exchange servers. The configuration of MAPI email filters are only possible through the CLI.

To configure the MAPI email filter in the CLI:

config emailfilter profile edit “myMapiFilter” set spam-filtering enable

set options spamfsip spamfssubmit spamfsurl spamfsphish config mapi set log enable set action “discard or pass”

end

next

end
