How do I set Sender rules?

Doteasy Email Protection System can take specific actions based on the sender’s email address.

To see the sender rules list:

1. Click on Rules.

2. Select Senders. The Senders page appears.

The columns in the table are:

a)       Sender – the email address of a sender

     b)       Who – the use who last modified the sender’s disposition

c)       Action – the action taken by Doteasy Email Protection System when a message from the sender arrives. Possible actions are:

·         No Change – keep the current action

·         Always Allow – always allow mail from this sender without scanning for spam. (note: dangerous attachments are still scanned and stripped)

·         Always Hold for Approval – mail from this sender is always held for approval, even if spam-scanning does not flag it as spam.

·         Hold if looks like Spam – this is the default action; mail from this sender will be held if it scores high enough on the spam scale

·         Always reject – messages from this sender are always rejected with a permanent failure code.

·         Delete from Table – the sender is deleted from the table. Also, Doteasy Email Protection treats the sender as if the setting Hold if looks like Spam had been used.

d)       Expiry – You can specify the effective period of this rule.

e)       Comment – allows you to enter a comment if you like. This can help you remember why you whitelisted or blacklisted a sender.

To set new actions, adjust the Action entries approximately and click on the Submit Changes button.
