  2. SPX Portal on port 443 in stead of 8094

    It is only possible to use ports between 1025 and 65535 for the spx portal. Receipients behind a firewall which block non standard ports will not be able to choose a password for encryption. I know port 443 is being used for the user portal so it will conflict so maybe use an alias for both. Just like the ssl vpn port not able to use port 443 is a major flaw in this product.

  3. Reason for email quarantine in quarantine list

    It would be great to use the GUI to see at a glance the reason for why an email was sent to the quarantine. Currently the easiest way to do this in the GUI is to un-check all of the "filter-by" options and check them one by one until you find the reason.

    Ideally an additional column would be added to the list that states the reason (Blocked Source IP, Spam, Infected, etc.). It would also be nice if the UI of the email filter section was brought inline with other parts of the XG, such as the live users…

  4. Email Protection: exceptions for virus,- spam and content checks

    Please make it possible to make specific exceptions for virus,- spam and content checks like it is possible in the UTM. Now you can only make general "Spam Check Exceptions" for "Domain Name"??? Which actually only creates an exception for the IP blacklisting check.

  6. Filter encoded content on headers

    Hi,

    we received a phishing attempt in which an internal and effective email address appear as sender. After some analysis we found in the message header that sender and subject were encoded on UTF-8 (Base64).

    Here the modified header as example:


    Received: from hide (hide) by hide
    (hide) with hide (TLS) id hide via hide
    Transport; Wed, 10 May 2017 23:45:21 +0200
    Received: from hide (hide) by hide
    (hide) with hide (TLS) id hide; Wed, 10 May
    2017 23:45:21 +0200
    Received: from hide (hide) by hide
    (hide) with hider (TLS) id hide
    Transport; Wed, 10 May 2017 23:45:21 +0200

  7. XG: Allow SPX Data protection rules to use keywords

    On the XG - version 16 in MTA mode you can only use predefined CCLs and are limited in what you can look for in Data protection to encrypt emails.

    Like legacy mode and version 15 - you can use a keyword to encrypt emails. For example any emails with Subject: [Encrypt] - SPX encrypt this email. This is a very crucial feature that should exist.

    Sent on behalf of client.

  8. Notify sender when email is rejected after acceptance

    Accepted e-mails may never be lost.

    If an assumed e-mail is discarded due to an e-mail policy, a notification to the sender must be made. False positives always occur.

    If an e-mail is rejected by the "Spam Protection" or "File Protection" policy, there is no way to inform the sender. The same applies to the RDNS tests, also the sender is not notified here.

    The reason:
    In Germany, an invoice can be sent by e-mail, even if the reminder is not respected, the court order for payment can be opened at the dunning court. About the statement "My firewall has…

  9. Sending only 1 quarantine report to user

    Currently the quarantine digest sends a report to very e-mail adres that is configured as a user.

    When user1 had 1 email address it gets 1 report
    When user2 has 3 email addresses it gets 3 quarantine reports these other two are duplicates, so only need to be send once.

  10. pattern/expression filter for SMTP Protection

    Ability to filter email based on a word search. Would be nice to have a list of prohibited words that if the SMTP scanner sees the word, the email could be filtered or dropped, etc.

  11. Support Outlook 2016 with SPX outlook add-in

    Currently XG is still using version 1.3 of the outlook plug-in which does not support Outlook 2016. Can you please update the plugin/add-in on the XG User portal.

  12. e-mail spoofing protection

    Dear All,

    This product already has integration with domain environments and it will be really great to have functionality to check for existing mailboxes. In case appliance receive an e-mail with randomly generated recipient (real domain with fake user part) it will discard it asap.

    I'm not familiar with how it should be properly implemented (may be exchange integration needed), but it will be really awesome functionality!

  13. POP3/IMAP-Increase email scan limit

    Please increase POP3/IMAP email scan size limit from 10 MB to at least 50 MB as for SMTP. It is not acceptable to have security only until 10 MB. Denying is also no option, if you want to keep your business communication going.

  15. Allow Wildcard Support for Email Domain Filtering

    Would be very helpful to be able to create content scanning rule using wildcard to filter known spam/spoofed email top-level-domains.

    Example:
    Filter rules using .xyz, .dot, etc. instead of domain1.xyz, domain2.xyz, domain3.xyz, etc.
    *.dot

  17. Quarantine Mails - User Portal

    Quarentine Mails function in user portal is close to useless as it is today.
    The only option is to delete!

    There need to be an option to see the mail in clear text (safe).

    And an option to release the mail, if it was incorrectly quarentined.
    (Admin should be able so specify if a user can release the whole mail - including attachmens, or just the email body, without attachments!)


    • Option to send daily/weekly/montly reports of quarentined mails to the users mailbox.

    These are to be expected from a product with AV mail scanning functions!!!

  18. POP3/IMAP-More action options when scanning

    At the moment, scanning POP3/IMAP traffic does only allow to change subject or accept. A really antispam engine will block spam email even on these protocols. Please add more action options.

  19. Customize Logo for SPX Portal

    Like the UTM allow for a custom logos to be uploaded and used for the SPX portal page (possibly block pages as well?). This is currently not available when making SPX templates.

  20. Web portal to view secure email

    The SPX Email Encryption is an awesome feature used by many of my customers. However, it's not always trust by recipients because everyone these days are taught not to open unusual emails. The likes of UK Government and Barclays send an email to you to say there is a secure document waiting in their portal. So you logon and see that document and have the choice to save it locally.

    What would be awesome is this same/very similar feature on the UTM/XG, so you still have the SPX encryption engine but the email/pdf is held on the device for X…
