  1. Toggle to block bulk mail

    I have a few clients that are coming over from Proofpoint Essentials - on that platform (even at the basic), it is easily possible to block bulk email (subscriptions or not) and have them show up in quarantine. It is also easier to block subsequent emails from a sender with a link the email, or a way to whitelist an email address that shows up in a quarantine.

    • License reporting

      I think it would be very helpful to have the ability to export a report for Email Security showing which mailboxes are actually consuming a license, or have that as a field in the Central console. I ran into a situation where a bunch of distribution lists got created as mailboxes and were consuming licenses. This put me over my purchased limit. It would have been nice to know that information as I hunted them down. Better sorting and filter options in that view would be nice also. This is under mailboxes by the way.

        Be able to free an email from an alias of a user from the Sophos Email Appliance user interface (not admin), which is linked to an active directory.

        • Ability to tag and deliver for all categories with configurable tags

          when configuring the email gateway spam and action categories, each category should have the tag and deliver option, and should include ability to customize the subject line tag. Otherwise, this is a very narrow solution and definitely does not work for my company.

            • Search Reflexion Using the Name of the Attachment

              I would like to be able to search and find messages based on the name of the attachment. This will help to figure out why threats get through.

              • Blocking certain character sets

                Having the ability to block messages based on character sets in the body of the message would be a nice feature. For instance if a message had mandarin characters or Russian.

                • Office 365 API support

                  Please tool the email gateway to have the ability to login via the Office 365 API to pull a mailbox list. Right now we sync AD from our internal domain to Central. However this does not get all valid mailboxes in that we have a number of O365 groups and distribution lists that don't live in Active Directory. If the email gateway could simply pull the list of valid addresses from O365 like some competitor products it would save quite a bit of manual mailbox additions.

                  • Geoblocking

                    Please add the ability to geo block email sources. Some of your competitors allow you to block by country code from those areas you know you don't want mail from. While you can block top level domains like *.cn that is not always useful in that sometimes a message has a .com but originates in a place like Russia or China.

                    • Make Rejection of unknown sender address configurable

                      We have several "temporary" mail accounts which aren't configured in our Domain but are essential senders addresses from our ERP system which get rejected, when our mail server tries to relay these to Sophos Central.

                      It would be a lot better if this behavior could be configured to not reject these mails.

                      • Customer defined "MAILER-DAEMON@prod.hydra.sophos.com" email address

                        Every time then email delivery fails via Sophos Email Gateway, sender receives message from "MAILER-DAEMON@prod.hydra.sophos.com" including details, why delivery failed. Customers like to change this address to something related to customer email domain.

                        For example. Customer email domain "companyX.com". Mailer daemon address related to customer domain: "mailer-daemon@companyX.com".

                            Need a feature to prevent impersonation attempts, we are getting flooded with spam and phishing attempts using the CEO and other VP's names in the sender address. These feature are offered by other venders so I know this can be done.

                              • User notification when Outbound Email is blocked

                                Please add a feature in Reflexion to alert users when an outbound email is blocked. This could function in the same manner as the existing SPAM Digest/Summary and only alert users a few times a day, or it could send a reply as soon as it is blocked.

                                The biggest issue right now is that users will forward an email as an attachment from Outlook and it will be blocked because it didn't meet RFC2183 standards "no filename." That's fine, I'd rather not send non-compliant emails, but the users need to be alerted so they can re-send the email. Otherwise…

                                  When entering an IP address or domain in the allow or block list it would be helpful if there was a description or notes field. It's a challenge to figure out why an IP address was added to the allow list months or years later.

                                    • Email Gateway - Extend expiration time of Welcome email link.

                                      Link expire after 12 hours, during a deployment this is far from ideal.
                                      Not all users can open a mass email in a couple hours.
                                      These links should stay active for a configurable amount of time or have a standard expiration time of a week.

                                      • Require Encryption between email domains

                                        We have some companies we work with that require us to enable "Require TLS Encryption" and to fail if that can't be setup. Would be nice to have the option to do so like on the SEA.

                                        • More detailed information in logs, reports

                                          Hello,
                                          I have several items that would make Sophos Email gateway more useful.
                                          1. A detailed report showing what Sandstorm actually caught. From an admin's point of view just knowing something happened is not useful. If I had an idea of where a message came from and why it tripped Sandstorm, I could possibly make adjustments to protect us better in the future.
                                          2. A clear reason on the summary page on why a message was deleted or quarantined would be helpful. While you can usually figure it out in the message source information, that is not very time efficient.…
