  1. Tagging emails of whitelisted sender

    When an email is detected as sent by a whitelisted sender there should be a possibility to add a tag for this, similar to the spam detection.

  4. Reports Enhancement

    We need to have ONLY 1 report to be sent daily to email account's user contains digest from all GFI sections ( Spam / content / security ) showing why emails were been deleted or quarantined instead of single mail notification per processed email message , this will be very much more effective .

    Hi

    There are various reports that can be received on blocked emails and individual emails can be disabled.
    You can also for spam emails enable a daily report see Quarantine Reports http://manuals.gfi.com/en/mailessentials/content/administrator/quarantine/quarantine_options.htm

    If you need such a report I would suggest to enable Quarantine RSS as it offers the ability to view it from any device and offer the ability to approve emails or completely delete them.

  5. Allow to stop processing of other rules in attachment filtering

    I have two rules.
    First blocks xxx*.exe files without notification.
    Second blocks *.exe files with notification.
    Now when some xxx*.exe file comes, GFI delivers me one notification delivered with two info about two rules, but in this case i do not want to be notified.
    I would like to add "stop processing of other rules" setting, which would allow to stop processing of other rules when certain rule is positively evaluated and action is taken.

  6. MailEssentials Quarantine Reports Tool

    29 Local Email Domains have been existed on the GFI Mail Essentials. Every E-mail Domain represents different companies but it has been managed by single GFI Mail Essentials. We want that Quarantine report for every domain is sent to interested manager of company. GFI-170529-487994 number ticket was opened but support couldn’ t give a solution. For this reason, it was told that we should open the Feature Request. Only the numbers are available in the custom reports below. Detail information of blocked incoming e-mail which is sent from someone, doesn’ t be existed.

  7. Chinese Spam

    We receive a lot of spam with chinese characters. However, they are all UTF-8 encoded, therefore the header check of the character set doesn't work. Maybe you could add a detection method which tries to guess the language based on the UTF-8 characters? E.g if the mail contains at least 1 chinese character, classify it as Chinese.

    Hi

    In GFI MailEssentials we have a Language Detection filter which is already able to do this mentioned functionality. It works by actually detecting the language and has support for both Traditional and Chinese languages. The functionality you mention as part of the Header checking is quite obsolete now and we suggest to use the new filter.

    http://manuals.gfi.com/en/mailessentials/content/administrator/anti-spam/anti-spam_filters/language_detection.htm

    This was released as part of the 2014 version

  8. SPF Block Soft FAIL result for certain domains only

    It would be great to have the ability to block SPF soft fail results for certain domains only. We receive a lot of spam with SPF soft fails from a free mail provider. However, we don't want to enable it globally, since it leads to numerous false positives in our case.

  9. Released attachments whitelisted by checksum

    We get attachments that are get quarantined but are legitimate. Once released, they will be forwarded on and get quarantined again requiring them to be released again.
    Can the attachment once released from quarantine be added to a list, for a period of time, so that it can be delivered without being quarantined again if the file checksum is the same.

  11. Prevent automatic pickup of licenses

    MailEssentials in SMTP mode picks up the number of users automatically following sending of emails.
    In an set up where a server hosts multiple organisations and you want to protect only one of them, the MailEssentials product lacks because of this issue.
    Although in the sales videos GFI recommends you to install GFI in SMTP mode to overcome the directory mode licensing in AD mode, the issue in SMTP mode is not really resolved because there is no way how you can block MailEssentials in continuing to add users automatically.
    The worst thing is that it will stop relaying emails…

  12. whitelist for EmailSecurity and Content Filtering

    Please add a Whitelist function for EmailSecurity and Content Filtering.
    At the moment we use the workaround to disable the blocking rule but that cut not be the solution.

    Thanks in advanced

  13. uniform use of CIDR formating for IPv6

    Make it that we can fill in the same format for an IPv6 range in all the fields. Now we have to zero fill IPv6 ranges in the greylist exclusion but not in whitelist or SPF exceptions.
    2001:DB8::/64 vs 2001:DB8:0:0:0:0:0:0/64

  14. Email Exploit Engine

    Currently we have an issue whereby an number of legitimate emails are being blocked by the Email Exploit Engine. Can this be updated to include some sort of white listing either by domain or email address?

    I would suggest to open a ticket with GFI Support.

    Emails that are blocked by the Email Exploit Engine typically are malformed or have something malicious, unless there is an issue and such emails are being triggered incorrectly.

    Samples would help to facilitate resolution.

  15. Customizable notification messages

    I would like the edit the malware notification message the a user receives.

    As an example, I would like to add something like
    „If you feel that this is a false-postive action, please contact Mr. XY, phone numer 1234 for further assistance.“

    Also the customers asked, whether it is possible to add their Company logo to such notifications and to quarantine-mails.

    Hi

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You can already modify the notifications from the Templates folder from within the GFI MailEssentials installation directory.

    To locate the template you wish to modify I would suggest to search for text that is visible in the original template.

    Please take a backup to ensure that you can resolve to the existing template on any errors. Also note that on upgrades the template will be reverted back to original, so keep a copy of the modified template.

    For testing you can send emails appended with test virus eicar available from eicar.com

    Thanks & regards
    Ian

  16. Content Filtering's quarantine separate from malware quarantine

    Until GFI MailEssentials 20.2 when an email is quarantined by some content filtering filter and if I have antispam edition license, I have a message in the quarantine that say me "you need email security license edition". I think this quarantine is independent from malware and must be with spam quarantine or another quarantine. Now I can approve the email but this alert message is strange.

  17. Auto Purge SQL Xpress database weekly

    My suggestion is allow administrator to configure Auto Purge for SQL Xpress database weekly (maintain data from last one, two or three weeks). Actually it can be configured only monthly.

    It is necessary in my environment because we have more thar 700 accounts, and this database grow up very quickly, reaching the SQL Xpress limit size (10Gb).

  18. MailEssentials on a domain member server should be capabele to scan internal traffic

    ... which would be a prefered solution considering compatibility issues and also offers a solution for a smarthost in a DMZ without additional costs.

  19. Resolve MailEssentials design failure regarding free RAM percentage for SpamTag instead of ADSI

    as it`s in the nature of any MS Database, including MS Exchange, the DB grabs as much RAM as available, needed or not. Out-of-the-box there is in opposite to MS SQL Server also no Exchange Feature to limit the RAM usage.
    Only ADSI could be used to set some Exchange limits, but as this could cause other problems with Exchange Update Rollups, migrations, or the general Exchange performance, this would be a last resort for a skilled Exchange and AD admin.
    To solve the problem with the SpamTag URL check while installing, if there isn`t more then 10% free RAM…

  20. Inbound Rate Control Spam Filter

    It would be really beneficial to implement a new spam filter, based on the Rate Control settings that Barracuda Spam Filter uses here https://campus.barracuda.com/product/emailsecuritygateway/article/display/BSFv51/Rate+Control+Inbound/

    This setting alone could capture emails before SpamRazer gets ahold of it, and minimize the number of spams getting through efficiently with low false positive counts.
