    How can I give this more than 3 votes!

    Seriously, given how many recipients struggle with signed or encrypted emails, this is really required.

    BTW Anonymous, {plain} still works fine for me.

    Can we just have an 'Exceptions ' tab in the Mail Security/Encryption section. (Or maybe put it in the Options section). Here you can list the recipient addresses that will receive plain, unsigned and unencrypted mail.

    We have two customers do can't reply to any emails we send them, unless we put {plain} at the start of the subject.

    Why is this not documented?

    I have mailing lists that will not accept my signed and encrypted emails (it makes the message too large) and some recipients are too clueless to add the certificate to their system. Each time I have to log into Astaro and turn off encryption, send the email, then turn it back on.

    So I'll just try with "{plain}" in the subject next time and see if it works.

    But you really need to have the keyword dropped form the subject so that the recipient doesn't see it.

    And the keywords probably should be able to be changed via the Web interface.

    This would be fantastic. We have had to spend a fortune getting S/MIME certs for all our email users. If only we could use one for the whole domain - that would be great.

    Bob, I think the real advantage of DMARC is that the sender gets a report so that he knows what's happening.

    This is what the receiving mail server needs to do (or Proxy in Astaro's case). Ie if Astaro detects a phishing email, then a report gets sent to the address in the sending domain's DMARC DNS record.

    That's my understanding anyway.

    Steve Gibson did a podcast on it for more info. See http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-353.pdf from page 15 onwards.

    Probably should have a user-defined time period, after which the recipient's whitelist status is removed if there have been no emails from them. That way it would prevent the list growing without end.

    Hi Bob. Really just so that users can easily add all the contacts in their address book to the SMTP exception list so that emails from them are never inadvertently blocked as spam.
