  1. quarantine action Audit log - for SPAM Quarantine

    quarantine action Audit log - for SPAM Quarantine
    All Actions (release, delete, ond so on) on Malware Quarantine will be logged in an Textfile for Review.
    it would be very usefull to add this function to te SPAM Quarantine as well.
    we have actual the Problem that nobody can find out who worked on a missed false positve in SPAM Quarantine.

  2. Search Button for 'Keywords'.

    There needs to be a button to search for Keywords in Content filtering.

    Right now you have to scroll through pages and pages of 'Keywords' to remove or find a keyword.

    Keywords are a very effective way of blocking spam and my list is now up to 353 pages, and scrolling through them to 'check' or 'remove' a keyword is a pain in the ass. Especially if you 'accidently' add one.

  3. 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.

  4. Advanced SPF filtering - options separately for SOFT FAIL, Neutral, Unknown and NONE

    Could you please allow each option separately? Each would have its own check box, each result.

    SOFT FAIL
    Neutral
    Unknown
    NONE

  5. Auto-Whitelist check email Whitelist before adding.

    I have added *@domain.com to my email whitelist. But when users email anybody at domain.com, they are added to auto-whitelist. Auto-whitelist should check the manual whitelist before filling up my auto-whitelist entry limit.

  6. Quarantine url acces per user

    We can provide the MailEssentials url to end users. If a domain user goes to the MailEssentials site, they will see the User Console section at the bottom, where they can look at their quarantined items and release them. My questions is:
    "Is it any way that just only the spammed email of the user who is loged in appear for the approval and release option but not all emails for all users together? Because if one user make a mistake for another user it won't be good.
    Thanks in advance.

    GFI MailEssentials has 2 quarantines

    Spam Quarantine
    This is available to all end users and users can see their email.
    Administrators, on the other hand, can view all emails and approve/delete as necessary.

    Malware Quarantine
    This is only available to Administrator users and users can here re-scan, approve, delete or sanitize and approve.

  7. Quarantine reports

    Need to add the option "IMMEDIATLY" on the sending report of quarantine email report for "Approval" because the one hour maximum delay for each report is too long for our users.
    I mean it will be better if we can choose an option which can send report for approval as soon as the spammed mail come.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    If you want the immediate, then I suggest to opt for a different method, like tag email subject with words SPAM or putting in JUNK folder.

    Having an email generated for 1 spam email results in simply making quarantine reports as spam.

  8. Approved messages per user - Summary Report

    Provide a report that displays the number of messages manually approved by each user from the GFI MailEssentials Spam Quarantine.

    This will allow us to find opportunities for user education and optimization of whitelists, and reduce the amount of time users spend approving messages from the GFI quarantine.

    Bonus points for adding a drill down feature that shows a list and count of each of the senders that a user approved over the specified period of time.

  9. Filter on 'helo'

    I would like to see filtering around the 'helo' inbound servers receive.

    Being able to block using wildcards:
    *.newsletter.email

    or /regular expression:
    mail\d{2}\.newsletter\.email

    on the 'helo' from remote server names would be great.

  11. for those DNS queries where the SPF Record value is: v=spf1 +all ... suggest an option to mark have email marked as SPAM.

    If upon the DNS query of the SPF record and the result return is: v=spf1 +all
    ... the email should be tagged as SPAM.

  12. Custom Filter Rules for more granular control

    When floods of spam of similar content elements (like a real company name in subject), give admin custom, secondary filter actions to address if for example, "IF subject contains "CVS" delete email if "CVS" is not present in sending domain"... or something similar. Allow for custom filtering based on user defined rules.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    This was released as part of the 2014 version

  15. 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.

  16. 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.)

  17. 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.

  18. 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…
