XG MTA mode - bypass a sender/recipient address or domain from email protection
The new MTA SMTP deployment mode in SFOS v16 lacks the ability to bypass a (or some) sender/recipient from all email protections. At the moment, we can only create a SMTP policy to bypass a destination email domain from email protections, and it is not practical in most situations.
However, in the Legacy SMTP deployment mode, we can create a SMTP scanning policy to bypass certain sender/recipient from all email protections.
It will be great if MTA mode can be implemented with the feature of bypass certain sender/recipient from email protections.
We would appreciate this features as well as customers are asking us why next generation firewall is missing "old" features.
Why hasn't this been done yet?
How can people possibly be using MTA mode without being able to whitelist an email address.

SFOS-XG, MTA- MODE: Black list / White List senders Emails -Domains
It would be a great feature if you can enable Blacklist / Whitelist of senders emails /domains on SFOS XG 17.0 MR1 when we use Emails Proxy -MTA mode.
this feature used to be on UTM 9.xx and I'm wondering why its not on your next generation firewall.
This would be wonderful to see.
Me too like same filter on Cyberoam

The domain level bypass via "Spam Check Exceptions" in Email->General Settings isn't a complete bypass either.- we had several emails quarantined due to unscannable attachments (attached .eml Outlook email files which in turn contain Excel spreadsheets as attachments).
If we turned off the "quarantine unscannable attachments" option under the SMTP policy, those same emails sailed through and were delivered successfully. This is definitely a major omission of essential basic functionality - even more so given that the same functionality was available in Legacy mode.

Please add the ability to create a black and white List on the “mail addres", "domain name” and “IP addres”.
