How can we improve?

Make it so the E-mail Blocklist runs before Security Filters

I have specific domains added to the E-mail Blocklist that keep sending us viruses. But the E-mail Blocklist appears to run after the Trojan & Executable scanner and the Attachment Filtering scanner which puts the e-mails in the quarantine instead of being deleted.

It would be nice if you allowed us to choose the filter order for all the available scanning engines instead of just the spam filters.

    I agree. We have SPF on our domain, and Directory Harvesting enabled in MailEssentials, but emails claiming to be From and To non-existent users of our domain are quarantined before the anti-spam checking kicks in.

    I suggest that if the anti-spam checks can be done BEFORE the EmailSecurity (antivirus) checks, then it would reduce load on the admins like myself that are getting 200+ emails a day that are obviously going to be thrown out because they are From or To users that don't exist.
