  1. Delete Emails in SMTP Quarantine after xx days

    At the moment Emails in SMTP Quarantine will only be deleted, if the Quarantine Area is full. Other Sophos products auto-delete these Emails after 30 days. It would be great, if the XG does that too.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Mail Policy based on Sender email address/domain

    We have a customer who regularly receives encrypted emails due to the content of the email.

    We've recently discovered that if an encrypted email comes in and 'Quarantine unscannable content' is selected, the email is quarantined and the user doesn't receive their Quarantine Digest email (which is by design).

    My ideal solution would be to create a separate incoming Mail Policy which allows me to specify the sender's domain (or group of domains) where I can deselect 'Quarantine unscannable content,' so that encrypted emails from those senders aren't quarantined. I would then be able to re-order the Mail Policy to…

  5. 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.

  6. IP List Object for MTA mode

    This is more of a bug than an actual idea. However the tech support for ticket #8659892 insists this is a new idea .
    When creating Exceptions in MTA mode , it allows us to create an IP List object when we want to define a new object to be selected. However This IP List object couldn't be selected at all.
    This behaviour is more of a bug than a new feature especially considering that it took them to find out for themselves that IP List is not supported (else they would have replied me that right away instead of…

  7. 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.

  8. Add content disarm and reconstruction

    Add Content Disarm and Reconstruction to XG-Firewalls Email Protection functionality.

    It would be great to enable the XG firewall to use CDR when handling incoming emails (with the possibility to access original files for a certain time if neccessary)

  9. Show all rejected mails in Mail Logs

    If an email was rejected, due to invalid HELO or missing RDNS, you can't see this in the Mail Logs, only in the Log Viewer.

    To make troubleshooting easier, this information should also be visible in the Mail Logs.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  15. 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.....

  17. SPX reply to include attachments

    When a recipient of an encrypted mail replies there is no option to include an attachment as part of the secure reply. This was a feature on the SG, needs to be added to the XG.

  20. SPX template per domain

    We only want SPX encryption being activated when a user explicitly enables "Encrypt" via the Outlook SPX plugin. In all other cases the mail should not be encrypted.
    We have a Exchange server with several domains. I want to make a rule that mails being sent from (domainA.com) are using "TemplateA" while mails being sent from (domainB.com) are using "TemplateB".
    Please make it possible to use a template based on the domain.
    Now you van only set a template for a domain (via SMTP route&scan) if you want that ALL mail is being encrypted.
