  1. 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.

  2. Add Legitimate emails list with Blacklisting/Blocking ability

    The same way how it goes with Quarantined emails with the ability to approve them, please add a list with all legitimate emails with the ability to Blacklist/Block those emails.

  3. 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.)

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Public Folder Scanning

    Users sometimes drag inappropriate items to "Add to blocklist" in public folders. One example is items that were already classified as spam by GFI. It seems that many of these items cause Public Folder Scanning to fail going forward. I went back and forth with support on this issue and was asked to put this in as a feature request. Frankly, I see this as a bug and/or bad program design, but nonetheless, here goes. Feature Request - if GFI doesn't know how to handle something in Public Folders, skip it and move on to the next item rather than…

  9. Move the Approve and Delete buttons away from each other

    It is very easy to hit the wrong button when deleting or approving mail. I have released mail accidentally. It would be handy to have the select all option at the bottom of the list as well.

  10. Turn of Greylist for certain users.

    I have several users who do not like the greylist feature and would like to turn it off. It delays their emails too long. However, most users love the feature and want to keep it on. I would like to have the ability to turn this filter on/off for each user.

  11. Single detailed PDF report for all quarantined (or blocked) emails for all users

    We looking for a single PDF report that contains every single email that was either blocked or quarantined. PDF to be emailed on a schedule to one ore more email accounts.

    Currently I can create a custom report that can be emailed each day, but the options are only "Emails Blocked" which is Ok, but the report only shows me a high 10,000 ft level of the # of emails. I would like to drill down to ground roots and get a list of each and every email that was blocked for each and every single email account.

    Currently we…

  12. block url in content filter

    In the content filter possibility to block url's.
    url which start with http:// or https:// and end with .doc or .docx are blocked and put in quarantaine.
    This prevents Ransomware.

    Thanks,
    Peter

  13. grouping

    In the quarantine for today there are about 330 mail with the subject "[virus a variant of JS/Danger.ScriptAttachment trojan] Bank account record" but sent to different recipients and with different sender addresses. This happens more often that mails have been quarantined with the same subject.
    Sometimes these messages are spam, but sometimes not.
    A new feature could be to group these messages into one grouped message and be able to approve or delete the messages in the group.

  14. Allow autowhitelist to exclude email with certain characters in

    Allow autowhitelist to exclude email with certain characters in email such as +.

  15. Allow for easy blacklisting of ALL of the new specialty TLDs. (.auto, .faith, .stream, etc).

    I don't think my company has ever gotten a legitimate email from these useless TLDs (at least for email purposes). I just want to blanket blacklist them.

  16. Bericht Erstellen

    bei einem Kunden haben wir über den GFI einen Bericht erstellen müssen welche Mails der letzten 6 Monate gesperrt wurden.
    Jedoch braucht man definitiv sehr lange sich durch 500 Seiten durchzuwühlen und jede Seite einzeln abzuspeichern.
    Leider ist dies in den bisherigen Versionen nicht möglich solche Auswärtungen wie über -> Dashboard -> Protokolle auszuwerten mit Datum, Uhrzeit, Absender und Empfänger.
    Da wenn ich über Berichterstellung -> Berichte eine Auswertung mache nur grafisch dargestellt wird und das nicht wirklich sinnvoll ist.
    Dies wäre meiner Meinung nach ein guter Ansatz für die neuere Version, da man sich auch einiges an Zeit sparen…

  17. Improvements to IP Blocklist needed

    The IP Blocklist that has been present for a while now is a great feature. Over time, this list can grow. Here are some changes that will improve the functionality of the IP Blocklist:

    1. Allow the user to search for IP addresses previously added, and to also search by description. Email Blocklist & Whitelist have a search feature - there is no reason why the IP Blocklist should be any different.

    2. Add the ability to import & export the IP Blocklist. Again, this feature exists with other lists. For consistency, and improved functionality, the IP Blocklist feature should…

  18. Ability to suppress the frequency of alerts when patches are pending

    Ability to suppress the frequency of alerts when patches are pending. It tends to send alerts every hour for every server that GFI Mail Essentials is installed and this is something we cannot do ASAP. We need to create a window schedule for this. So if we plan to install it next day or tonight and the alerts came out this morning then that is at least a minimum of 12 hours of noisy emails we don't need.

  19. SPAM TAG - Automatically add sub-domain wildcard in block list

    When SPAM TAG adds a new email address to the block list, it often uses the wildcard in the address, such as *@spamdomain.com, but spammers now use random characters in the subdomain - such as NAME@XYZ.SPAMDOMAIN.COM.

    We currently have to manually add the format *@*.SPAMDOMAIN.COM & we'd like the system to be able to catch this sub-domain automatically.

  20. decompression

    An email gets caught by GFI due to decompression rule. The error was "exceeded maximum number of files allowed". But there was only 1 attachment in the zip file. Why and how do I find out why it got caught knowing there is only 1 email attachment?
