    This is a great idea to mix with the one about being able to print out the configuration. What a great tool for tech support! My wife wrote a "sysinfo" script for IBM AIX boxes so she can get a quick look at what's happenning when people need help.

    An Astaro "Auditor" program would be much better than the raw information one gets from 'Config dump'.

    Practically speaking, there are some well-know mistakes that can be made, and some already receive warnings in WebAdmin. I suspect there are many more one could check for if one weren't concerned about mucking up the programming in the product.

    James, I haven't seen that an extensive whitelist is required, so I don't understand the motivation for your two suggestions about making it easy to add adresses en masse.

    How is this better than syslog?

    Sorry to hear that you're having to deal with a psycho. Rather than 2/3/4, what about adding an option to the 'Expression Filter' in 'Anti-Spam' that allows you to have matches put into a "system" quarantine where an administrator can do any of the items you've lised above.

    If there is a choice to be made, I think L2TP over IPsec should have priority over PPTP. If it's straightforward to do both, then that would be great.

    The language is chosen automatically in the EUP based on the selection in the users browser. If the user has not made a language selection, then the 'Fallback' selected in the EUP configuration is used.

    This is already included for the Enduser Portal although there's no way to have different entries for different languages for the "welcome" message. There's also only room for one language in 'Management >> Customization'.

    Dan, isn't this how it works now?

    Astaro briefly relabeled a web optimization appliance. It didn't last long, so I'm guessing this idea has no chance at Astaro unless one of the developers has an insight that would allow Astaro to accomplish this easily and with low overhead.

    Have you tried using a Backend Group (User Group Network) in a QoS or MultiPath rule? I don't know if it works as one would expect, but Astaro does let you create the definitions using such network definitions.

    Jonathan, aren't you suggesting that the SMTP Proxy become a mailserver?

    Matt, if you put 'Uplink Balancing' into "Multipath" mode, doesn't that allow you to do what you want if the traffic type supports it?

    Great idea. Even just logging all access and actions in Mail Manager would be a good start. If I never opened an email, I can't be accused of reading it!

    Yes, suzzyx, a great example of another place in Astaro where there should be a "whitelist" as well as a "blacklist."

    Interesting idea, Microsaft. It could be a combination of two lists. If the recipient matches any pattern in the blacklist, don't sign the email, if the recipient matches any pattern in the whitelist, sign the email.
