  1. Automatically Blacklist emails by replying and adding [blacklist] to subject line

    Most users do not have the time to log into the user portal just to blacklist emails. It would be great if the users could reply to an email they want to blacklist and have it automatically added to the blacklist just by modifying the subject, perhaps by adding [blacklist]?. This is already possible with encrypting emails, why can’t we just add blacklisting to the list?

    i.e. Email comes in from spam@spammersfakedomain.com with a subject line of: i like spam.
    I reply but change the subject to: [blacklist] and hit send. This gets picked up by the UTM and adds…

      • Powershell Module for searching logs

        It would be great if there were a Powershell module to allow doing granular log searches. I often like to look for specific information and in differing ways. The time to obtain this information from support is far too inefficient. For instance, I was just looking for all messages in the log with the .email top level domain.

        • Allow backups to be download on secondary SUM

          If the SUM is the primary SUM on the UTM, you can set it to back up daily, etc.

          The secondary SUM, doesn't have this option. It doesn't need to have control like the primary SUM, just get back ups.

          • AD Prefetch schedule

            Presently AD Prefetch schedule isn't picking up newly created accounts in AD. Every time we need to click on "Prefetch now" to have the new accounts in UTM instead. It would be nice if the prefetch schedule could pick up newly created users in AD automatically.

            • tor meek block

              Blocking TOR-MEEK would be a great feature.

              The application filters do not block any MEEK-REFLECT connections, the only way stopping clients to use TOR is taking them offline or blocking the entire internet including google/apple and microsoft wich isnt a option...soooo ? plz? :)

              • WebAdmin: ACL / Role for Time Period Definitions

                We are a service provider, fully managing a Sophos HA cluster at a customer site. Customer logins to the system should be limited to ONLY change Time Period Definitions, because
                we created several firewall-rules that are used to allow external third parties (eg. software and hardware support providers) access to internal client systems at the customers network. These are temporarily activated and deactivated using time period definitions.

                Now it would be very beneficial if there would be an ACL to grant access to our customer to only modify the time period definitions so they can enable access to their external…

                • Configured country blocking rules via SUM.

                  SUM allows for the configuration of firewall policies and rule set however it does not allow for the configuration and deployment of country blocking rules. Currently, you must configure country blocking by individual UTM.

                    • Show uptime for PPPOE and DIAL devices

                      I would like to see on the dashboard the uptime for any dialup links like ADSL PPPOE - or time since last 'connection' - plus a hover over or similar quick link shows the last 10 uptimes - this can help determine if an interface is flapping
                      At the moment if I think a link is down by the time I login to the UTM it may already be reconnected and I cant tell if it was a link outage or something else - if the dashboard shows uptime this it is simple to see if a recent disconnect happened…

                        • automatic configuration in UTM to automatically delete out of office replies that are getting stuck in the SMTP spool

                          ompany: Kent Police

                          Contact: Stuart Patton

                          Sophos Product: UTM 220

                          Version in Production: 9.352-6

                          How will this new feature address your business requirements: It will allow us to keep the SMTP spool clear of messages that have no prospect of being delivered
                          (out-of-office replies to do-not-reply messages that originate from domains with no MX records)

                          How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 1 if a large SMTP spool impacts the UTM performance, 5 if it does not ;-)

                            With the Sophos Email Appliance, there is an option to "Send me a secure copy" when replying to an email. There is no such option with the UTM. This is a required feature for legal so that they can prove that they actually sent correspondence.

                            • Synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall.

                              We discovered a problem when synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall. If the AD include two accounts with the same email address, then the Sophos firewall can not synchronise these AD accounts with the internal Sophos database. Is the possible to change that, because many companies are using an email address for two or more employees. Thank you in advance.

                              • Have Sophos Deployment Packager skip copying files when the source directory is the local machine

                                If a local location is entered in the "source folder" field in Sophos Deployment Packager, it should recognize this fact and skip making an extra copy of the files. By "local location" I mean if the path starts with a drive letter as well as a UNC path that starts with the name of the local machine.

                                        • qos setting dynamic limits on uplinks

                                          I would like to allocate set bandwidth for different vlans (deparments) including voice traffic. Is it possible for us to setup a 100Mb link as follows:

                                          VLAN1- 20Mb
                                          VLAN2- 20Mb
                                          VLAN3- 30Mb
                                          VLAN4- 10Mb
                                          VOICE traffic- 10Mb

                                          I would like to have it set like the above but say if one vlan require more bandwidth and it is available on the link it should be able to grow. The limit should not be a maximum limit so to speak.
