    Ability to preview quarantined mail in SMTP quarantine for administrators as with the SG is possible. This I used often to see if an e-mail was legit and would be safe to release .

  2. XG stops reading SMTP Exception with the first hit. SMTP Exception are not combined.

    I wanted to configure SMTP exceptions very granularly, when I started to configure SMTP exceptions in XG firewall.
    Therefore, I made one exception for antispam, one exception for dkim, one exception for malware and so on. I soon recognized that this does not work. XG firewall searches the SMTP exceptions until it has the first hit. If I add the email address example@example.com to the antispam exception and to the dkim exception, only one of these exceptions work. I have to configure a new exception, which skips both, and have to add example@example.com there and have to delete example@example.com in…

  4. A method to open Thunderbird email into Outlook window

    We know that Mozilla Thunderbird stores the data in an MBOX file format while Outlook supports PST file format. In such a situation, MailsDaddy Thunderbird to Outlook converter is a precise application tool that easily imports Thunderbird email into Outlook without any changes. The tool also helps the user to move Maildir files to Outlook PST format. It has several other conversion options that allow user to open Thunderbird data into PST, EML, MSG, HTML & various other mail formats.

  5. Quarantine Page on XG Firewall needs more options

    I would like to have the ability to choose the number of quarantine email that I can see at one time with a selectable list of options, 25, 50, 100, 200, all, etc. I would also like to see the delete and release buttons at the BOTTOM of the list as well as the top. The fields that contain the senders email addresses need to be longer or selectable in some way so that you can copy the domain information. Perhaps there could also be a button to create an exception rule directly from the selected email as well.

  7. I would like you to be able to confirm whether the AirGAP license has been applied.

    I went on a business trip to the site, operated it, and returned once without being able to confirm whether it was applied normally on the spot.
    Check the log output after the next day, and if it doesn't work, go again and extract the log ...
    I think that it is a product. It's too inconvenient to use.
    Because it is an AirGAP function that is supposed to be used in a closed environment
    Because you can't operate it unless you go to the site one by one, it seems that it is only a defect that you need…

  8. Quarantine report - Phishing/Spoofing

    Sender field, in quarantine report email, currently presents only the forged/fake address of a Phishing/Spoofing email.

    A good idea would be to add the real Sender Address, and maybe color it with RED to be eye-catchy and alert the user to pay attention to it.
    Alternatively, display only the original email address.

  9. Adding a domain to an exception

    It would be helpful if when adding a domain to the exception list you could also instruct the system to consider all of the subdomains that are associated with it as well. This may be done with a check box and the system could then add the subdomains to the filter list as they come in. The user could then go in and turn off the checkbox and exclude certain sub-domains.

  10. Point and click to add an Exception to Email

    It would be wonderful if you could just click on an entry in the Mail Logs and have it added to the Exception list. You could then go to the exception list and make any modifications needed but capturing the domain information is the most critical.

  11. Mail Log status changes - greylisted emails

    Id like to suggest changing the status of grey listed emails from rejected to greylisted. This would make searching for emails that have actually been rejected much easier. alternatively add an additional reason filter for greylisted items.

  12. time of click protection

    Due to the risk of users visiting unsecure sites that is being listed as HTTP:// bowsers are updating these security protecting by forcing the sites to go to HTTPS://. This being said the Sophos Email Appliance that is still being used by some companies out there is currently protecting the users with time of click protection but the link that the user gets is http://email appliance name : port. Will it be possible to get the link that the email appliance changed to be sent as HTTPS://email appliance name:.

    If possible or not please may I have feedback on this…

  15. Own CCL definition on Sophos XG

    Email protection and DLP on Sophos XG is possible use just with Data control list based on predefined dictionaries (CCL - content control list).

    Could you add support for definition of the own dictionary/CCL (based on keywords and regular expression)?

  16. Sophos XG does not send quarantine digest for outboung emails

    Sophos does not send a quarantine digest if an outbound email is quarantined by antispam. I checked antispam engine for outbound traffic by using the gtube string. My Outbound message has been quarantined as expected. I am not notified about that issue. So my users are not able to recognize that important Business email are not delivered.

    I opened support case 03082732 for that behaviour. They told me:

    “Regarding the quarantine summary digest for the outbound emails, right now this feature seems not be supported on the XG.”

    Please improve quarantine digest.

  17. MIME-Type recognition is sometimes wrong!

    I analysed MIME-Type recognition and found that MIME-Type recognition is not working proper. As example, DOCX-files are recognized as "application/msword". The right MIME-Type of DOCX-files is "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document".

    I already opened a support case with request number 03058060 and got this answer:
    "Yes, the MIME recognization from XG for .docx is under applications/msword"

    So please change MIME-Type recognition, that it serves the MIME-Types, which are listed here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/microsoft-365/compliance/supported-filetypes-datainvestigations?view=o365-worldwide

    or here:
    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/BasicsofHTTP/MIMEtypes/Commontypes

  18. Show traffic summary in log view

    Make the log items in "Email / Log Viewer" expandable and show traffic details with time stamps like:
    - incoming connection from
    - mail from
    - mail to
    - blocked because of
    - outgoing connection

    These information is sometimes crucial to trouble shoot mail problems and is otherwise buried in log files.

  19. Show deleted mails from quarantine in smtp log

    Please add a functionality, to show emails in smtp log, which were deleted from the smtp quarantine! If a mail gets quarantined, the smtp log shows "quarantined". But if I now delete the email, this action is not logged into the smtp log. Instead of this, if you delete mails from smtp spool, it gets logged into smtp log. Why? Please log this and show this in smtp log. If i release a mail from quarantine, this is logged to smtp log as "delivered"...

  20. user portal more email adresses

    On xg user cannot access to quarantine email.
    If you have 2 email domains defined, xyz.com and xyzllc.com, and emails to both domains go to the same users, the quarantine digest is sent for only xyz.com but not for xyzllc.com.

    Users shoul be able to see all the quarantine emails from all their email-adresses.
