  1. MailEssentials Spam Quarantine Digest Report Email "From" address

    It would be nice to have the ability to set a different "from" email address that the Spam Quarantine Digest Report Emails are sent from, rather than just the administrator email in GFI ME. It is nice to have the administrator email send us alerts about bayesian or anti-phishing alerts or failures, but not for the users to be able to reply to it from the digest report. I know there are ways in Exchange to limit who can send to that address, etc, but just thought it would be a nice feature.

  2. Too many entries in SpamDigest

    SpamDigest should NOT show greylisted mails that are later permitted after the greylisting period of about 15 minutes.

  3. Close connection after invalid RCPT TO command when DH is in SMTP mode

    At the moment DH in SMTP mode accepts all the recipients with 250, and performs the check and closes the connection after the "DATA" command. Would be better to perform the check and close the connection after the RCPT TO command.

  4. DNS-name in stead of IP (perimeter)

    Some domains have backup MX-records at their ISP/IT-partner. In those cases, the SMTP-perimeter server setting is in place, but I've seen that some of the ISPs work with variable IP-ranges, ergo ME is not set correctly all the time (it does not support MX-records, but IP-addresses, and those pointers can vary in practice).
    For example:
    10 mail.domain.com, which is 1 IP
    20 backup.isp.com, which might resolve now in 2 IP's, but tomorrow in 3, or 2 different IP's.
    Not too common, but I know KPN is changing IP's really often.

  5. X-header whitelist feature

    We have some customers working with the ISP as a backup for their email. Sometimes they also scan for virusses and spam, while adding an X-header afterwards. Whitelist based on X-header-value is a nice option in this case, so if scanned and X-header=%value%, then it is safe to pass along, but keep directory harvesting, bayesian, etc in the loop. ISP's don't keep track of all, like with MAX MAIL.
    So treat those emails as they would have been scanned by MAX MAIL, but make the value editable...

  6. Export settings

    It would be nice to have a unified option to export settings from one machine to another. Currently you have to export 5 seperate settings: EmailBlocklist.xml, KeywordCheckingGeneral.txt, KeywordCheckingSubject.,txt, ManualWhitelist.xml, Phishing.xml and one database: autowhitelist.mdb. A unified option alowing you to tick what you want (either all or you can choose which ones you need) feature would be apriciated.

  10. Autowhitelist for Authenticated User

    Our users cant send mails with his notebooks over port 25. At first Greylist blocks and then most mails are deletet about DNBL.

    The hint with another SMTP Virtuall Server isnt a good idea. No Autowhitelist and simple to find for Spamer.

    So please learn ME to know a authenticated User.

    Add unique message decimal numbers (i.e. 1,2,3 etc) on every message that is being processes by mail monitoring feature from GFI Mail Essentials, enhancing indexing, searching, quick find and auditing capabilities.

  13. Quarantine notifications to mail-enabled public folders

    Problem:

    Quarantine notifications are not working for email-enabled public folders.

    Email to the public folders are being quarantined. Therefore, a quarantine digest SHOULD be sent to the public folder.

    Suggestion:

    ME should alter the LDAP query being made so that it includes mail-enabled public folders.

    Background:

    Our customers send us email directed to public folders. Such
    as "Customer Service", "Feedback", "Clients", etc. It is our employees'
    responsibility to manage and respond to email in these folders.

    Spam to these mail-enabled public folders are being redirected to the quarantine. This is good. But the public folders are NOT receiving quarantine notifications.…

  14. Anti phishing filter

    Webmonitor has anti-phishing database. Why won't you combind this database into ME and let ME can scan the url in email body to filter them....

  15. Add text labels to stats graph

    I'm having trouble seeing which colour belongs to which filter. A (abbreviated) filter name underneath each column would solve that.

  16. Cache Directory Harvesting results for a while

    We get 30,000 mails a day, resulting in 30,000 Active Directory lookups. If the result of a lookup were cached for a bit (say 15 minutes or so) it would save the network and the domain controller some resources.

  17. Cache greylist survivors for a while

    Keep a list of external senders which have passed the greylisting once. When on that list they aren’t stalled again by greylisting because they are known to survive it anyway. This saves pointless delays.

  18. MailEssentials Reporting

    Currently, there is no way to do a report on a specific user to see if an email was blocked from the reports section. If a user comes to me and tells me an email was blocked yesterday, but I have the sender whitelisted, I need to be able to view that the email does exist and that it was iether blocked or flagged good... and if it was blocked, why it was blocked... like how the dashboard is laid out, but for reporting on specific dates.

  20. ME 2010 Dashboard Retention For Processed Email

    We discovered that we could barely go back 24 hours historically within ME 2010 Dashboard for processed email. In the previous version the retention was longer. Support lead us to log files we could search. Suggest adding either a retention setting within the Dashboard for processed email or ability to load a log file allowing searches and filters within the GUI Dashboard interface.
