  1. Serve Quarantine Digest on a different port to Admin Console

    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.

  2. Increase number of items per page in email logs

    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.

  4. 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 not…

  5. Configurable SPF settings

    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.

  7. 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

  11. SPX

    Indispensable add Outlook-add-in for the versions of Office 2016 and 365.
    SPX is a perfect component for GDPR, but it does not work with new Office Click-to-Run.

  13. Remove Specific SMTP Headers

    I'd like the ability to remove specific SMTP Headers from outbound emails, as was possible in UTM 9.

    This can be used, for example, to remove internal server names and IP Addresses from emails sent over the Public Internet

  17. Implement Soft Greylisting

    The bigger mail providers are sending the mails from its customers with different mail servers which are having different IP addresses to balance the load. But this is very difficult for a greylisting mechanism which is programed very strict. As a result some mails are coming through late or senders which are on the whitelist are blocked.

    There is a mechanism around which is called "Soft Greylisting". For example: The last byte inside of an IPv4 address is not getting analyzed in the assumption that the mail server are normally together in a subnet.

    I would like to get "Soft…

  18. Customizable Emails

    We would like the email to come from “Company Name” instead of “Sophos”

    Ex: It will say "Sophos XYZ-sophos@xyz.com".

    I realize there is not an editable field to modify from the services tab----> administration---> notification tab; but seeing how we manage many of these devices; is there some way around this limitation?

    For what it is worth; I believe this was an editable option in past series.

  19. Email Policies & Exceptions File Protection

    When selecting Compressed Files to block, the system erroneously filters out winmail.dat mime type Application/MS-TNEF files. winmail.dat is used by senders using Rich Text Format mail.

    Application/MS-TNEF mime type is not available at all to whitelist.

    Please rectify this ASAP.

  20. Support ISO-2022 encoding for Japanese mail quarantine

    The ISO-2022 code used as standard in Japanese is not displayed.

    UTF-8 is used very little in Japan.
