  1. Add blocked file type in log viewer or mail logs

    Please add blocked file type in the log viewer or mail logs so that we don’t have to go into policy test and see what file type is been blocked.

    • Sophos Outlook add-in encrypt forwarded messages

      When a user replies or forwards a message that was previously sent as encrypted, the Outlook ribbon will show the Encrypt button as being pressed. This gives the end-user the impression that the mail will be sent as encrypted. But the add-in will not insert the "x-sophos-spx-encryption: yes" line in the e-mail header, so the XG will not encrypt the message. Please get the Outlook add-in fixed so that will properly modify the e-mail header when the Encrypt button is shown as pressed.

      • Filtering mails based on their language

        We can block connections from country based rules, thanks for theSophos.
        But we can not filter mails if there is chinese , arabic or russian characters in its body.
        It would be very nice if we can filter mails with predefined character sets.
        For example if the subject has chinese charset or if the body has russian charset.

          • log viewer rejected\dropped emails

            Prior to 17.5 upgrade, you could see details about an email that was rejected\dropped (senders IP address, among other details) that seems to have been removed in this latest firmware. Hovering over the email in the mail logs says why it was rejected, but the only way to get more detail now would be to open an console session. Please add functionality back in future releases (we are running in MTA mode)

                • Improve DLP Notifications to sender

                  When DLP encrypts a mail the notification that the sender receives has an attachment with the headers of the encrypted mail. Not all senders of email are IT admins. Please change the senders DLP notification so that they are made aware of which email sent was encrypted and why e.g. Your email sent to (recipient) at 27/1/2019 13:00 was encrypted as it contained an IBAN number.....

                  • Make to possible to use MTA in Sophos XG without Transparent Mode

                    Currently it's only possible to use the MTA in Transparent Mode.

                    It's not possible to choose to use it only as MTA without the Transparent Mode.
                    If the Automatic MTA Rule is disabled MTA isn't working anymore.

                    Please make it possible to choose between a Transparent and a not Transparent Mode of the MTA like it was in Sophos UTM.

                    • Export mail logs to CSV or extend email logs under log viewer

                      When looking through Email - Mail Logs i'm able to view previous days/months. When looking through log viewer i'm only able to see the previous day. I would like an option to export mail logs from the Email - Mail Logs menu as this contains more usable data.

                      • MAIL with Protected file got quarantined and not delivered to the recipient

                        While some one send a mail with protected File as an attachment, Sophos will not show any logs in the e-mail Logs Troubleshooting and it quarantine mails even-if sender address/mail domain is added in the white-list.
                        Sophos will send bounced back mail to the sender regarding nondelivery of the mail for those recipients who are in CC that sopho could not able to send the mail with recipient error .

                        As of now solution is send the protected file as zip format in the attachment.

                        • Quarantine Digest points to Admin port

                          When you configure the quarantine digest to reference the external IP address of the XG unit, the digest email references the "Admin Console Port". This is absolutely absurd. It effectively means that I need to open up access to the Admin portal to the entire world without restriction - this is a MASSIVE security risk.

                          The easiest solution is to change the XG to use the User Portal port for the "release" link under the action heading.

                          • Delete Failed Messages

                            Would be nice if you should display more than 20 messages at a time for those situations where massive amounts of email needs to be deleted from logs. We were just in the situation where we had to delete 7,000 messages and had to do them 20 at a time. We shouldn't need to run a script on the backend or call technical support. Have maybe 20 message option, 100 message option, 500, 1000, etc.

                              • Determine Outgoing Mails not only through sender domain (Problem with Spoofing Mails)

                                Currently the Sophos XG and UTM Mailfilter seem to make a difference on Outgoing and Incoming Mails.

                                An incoming Mail seems to be determined by checking the protected Domains. All Domains that are not protected Domains are incoming Mails.

                                An outgoing Mail seems to be dtermined by checking the protected Domains. All Protected domains are incoming Mails.

                                That could lead to several problems, because only the Domains are taken into account in this decision.

                                1. In my opinion when "Scan outgoing mails" is not checked there is no check on "outgoing" mails. That could lead to problems with spoofing mails…

                                  on 17.5 new SPF settings if enabled, the behavior for SPF is if SPF results is NONE it will reject the email. There should be option to either reject or accept emails with no spf records.

                                    • Global Quarantaine for E-Mails with certain attachments

                                      we are now using a Firewall with a global quarantine for E-Mails with office documents which are send from outside. Administrators release this E-Mails after reviewing them. Not a single one emotet E-Mail reached a user since we have this feature enabled. As soon as the feature is implemented in the XG Firewall, we can switch completely to the XG and turn off out old Firewall. We need this feature absolutely on the XG
