New Email Guard Features

Several new Email Guard features have been added:

  • End user-level deny lists: This new feature allows end users to block email from unwanted senders. This feature compliments the existing end user-level allow lists (aka white lists). When end users add an email address to their personal deny list, messages sent from that address will be refused and will not be delivered to the end user. End users can access their personal deny list by logging on to the Email Guard portal. Administrators can access all end-user deny lists the same way they access end-user allow lists, from the User Management tab in the Email Guard portal.
  • Silent Copy policy action: This feature enables administrators to be alerted when an email violates a specified Attachment or Content policy. Administrators will be able to have silent copies (‘bcc:’) of messages that violate Attachment and Content policies sent to a specified distribution list. Administrators can specify which Attachment and Content policies will have the Silent Copy feature activated. This feature is activated on both the Attachment and Content policy configuration pages, located on the Policies tab of the Email Guard portal.
  • Recipient Shield Policy: This new feature allows administrators to add domain recipients to a deny list, blocking incoming mail sent to those addresses. This feature was created at the request of customers who wanted the ability to deny incoming mail sent to specific email addresses (such as the email address of a former employee). This feature also allows administrators to determine the action to be taken when a recipient is on this deny list. These actions include: Accept and bounce the message, Accept and silently discard the message, and Deny delivery.
