  1. 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
    Regards

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. MailEssentials Dashboard Logs - better filter options

    Please add support for Regular Expressions in the Dashboard Log filters, or even simply allowing for a ! to negate a search expression. For example, I often have need to search for emails getting through the spam filters, and it would be great to put !mydomain.com in the From filter to remove all outbound emails from showing by removing all entries with mydomain.com in the From field.

  11. Repair option for ME Installer

    Currently, the only way to fix a faulty ME installation is a complete un-install, and then complete a re-install, which is risky (particularly on an Exchange install) and exposes the mail-flow during the process.

    The majority of large Windows-App installers have long had a 'repair' option, which allows for checking and fixing of problems such as missing or corrupted files, incorrect or corrupt configurations, known issues, etc.

    ME installer needs a 'repair' option, to allow attempting of fixes for common problems before resorting to such drastic measures as uninstall and reinstall.

  12. Force Full Updates for ALL Engines

    Extending from idea: http://feedback.gfi.com/forums/267749-gfi-mailessentials/suggestions/7416130-a-dashboard-reset-button-for-each-engine

    A/V engines now have an option to force a clean full update, which seems to be useful in fixing the majority of corrupted downloads.

    Can we now extend that to:

    - Trojan & Executable Scanner
    - Email Exploit Engine
    - Spamrazer Engine
    - Anti-Phishing Engine
    - Bayesian Engine

  13. User requested updated quarantine report

    I've recently seen a feature on a competitors product, (hint hint), when the spam quarantine report is sent out in the morning, there is a link on the emailed report that the user can click to request "updates to the report since it was generated". So instead of sending 3 emails per day, we can send just the one in the morning, and if the user needs to check the quarantine in the middle of the day, they can click the "most recent report" link on the first quarantined report email to get a new current list. This would solve…

  15. Provide policy tester or better overview about policies

    With multiple attachment filter rules, whitelist/exclusions it would be hard to find out which rules apply if a email comes through.

    With a policy tested one would input the sender and or recipients of the email as well as any body text and this would highlight which rule hit the engine.

  16. Add Legitimate emails list with Blacklisting/Blocking ability

  17. Mails from nonexisting domain users

    A lot of SPAM looks as from "NonexistigAddres@MyDomain". Idea: Add rule for filtering mails from such senders. (Similar like Directory Harvesting for nonexisting recipients.)

  18. pro-actively inform distri's and partners about issues (i.e. status.gfi.com, rss-feed, twitter, etc.)

    pro-actively inform distri's and partners about issues (i.e. status.gfi.com, rss-feed, twitter, etc.).
    It will potentially save a lot of calls to support - not having to report a known issue again.

  19. Content Filtering fails on check for amount of files in archives

    Why do technicians ask users to give feedback for bug reports; shouldn't this be handled by the technician? Nonetheless, GFI ME Version 20.1 Build 20160420 has a bug where a SINGLE large PPTX file compressed into a ZIP file fails the decompression engine stating that ZIP file "exceeded maximum number of files allowed" even though the threshold was set to 2000. This is a bug report. Please fix your software! Thanks.

  20. Logon and operation logging

    We need a detailed logging of which users have logged on to GFI ME and what operations these users have done. Here I am concerned mainly with the processing of the quarantine. It should be documented, which mail would be deleted, confirmed or scanned again by the logged on user.
