  1. Mail Auto Replies

    It is going to be very good to be able to have groups of emails in Auto Replies , we need to insert our email list once ordered in groups ( a group can make me able to send certain message to certain emails ) , also we need to be able to activate group and not have ONLY one check box to activate message for all , thanks .

  2. Released attachments whitelisted by checksum

    We get attachments that are get quarantined but are legitimate. Once released, they will be forwarded on and get quarantined again requiring them to be released again.
    Can the attachment once released from quarantine be added to a list, for a period of time, so that it can be delivered without being quarantined again if the file checksum is the same.

  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. 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…

  5. 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.

  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. 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.

    Hi

    Why would you want to increase the debuglog size? Please note that having debuglog enabled does impact the performance heavily.

    it also depends on what speed the disks are.

    GFI Support have the ability to increase such log size.

  11. Scan doc/office files as containers - Remove unwanted attachments from office documents, not only malware

    In Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server you had an additional option called "Scan doc filers as containers"
    This made sure that unwanted content in office documents was filtered out. Not only malicious content was removed, but also everything what you added in the file filters was blocked by it.

    For example:
    A sender sends a .exe file to us we can block that file either in Microsoft Exchange or in GFI MailEssentials using Attachment Filtering.

    But what we are missing is:
    If a sender drags an .exe (or any file decaled in file filtering) file into an Microsoft…

  12. exclude domain from live logs

    it would be nice to see a feature in Mail Essentials that would allow us to not show/filter all internal email in the live logs window and only show emails in and out that are external to the company.

  13. Sorting user reports

    Currently when I run user reports it displays the information in, what appears to be, a completely random order. I find it weird that I can't choose to sort by user, at least. I'd like to be able to pick what column I want to sort by to make the report a little more user friendly. I feel like being able to sort by user or any of the total columns would make sense. It would make analyzing it go much faster. For now I just open it in excel to do it.

  14. In the Mail essentials GUI

    In the MailEssentials GUI it would be nice to add a " Next page" button at the top of the page when reviewing and deleting items from quarantine and etc. Currently when you remove the items the page refreshes at the top of the page and you have to scroll to the bottom to go to the next page to advance to the next. Also, when I delete the items in the container I do not think it is necessary to see what was deleted unless it can be undeleted. So, why not even advance to next set of items…

  16. Domain Key signing of outgoing mail

    This would help deliverability of email to other servers (ie. prevents our outgoing email getting spam trapped).

  18. Add additional reporting mechanisms to allow review of approved emails

    Req: Add additional reporting mechanisms to allow review of approved emails.

    As an administrator I would find it extreemly useful to be able to run a report daily, weekly, whatever that provides me with a list of all of the approved messages that users approve from their daily spam reports. This report would ideally include the user whom approved the email, the email itself (subject and link to text/body), the component it was trapped by, and if its something like a specific keyword or IP address, etc that the information is noted accordingly so that as an Administrator I can…

  20. Filtering based on complex rules

    Allow the adminstrator to configure MailEssentials to block an email when multiple checks return positive - e.g. If Keyword Checking and SPF return POSITIVE then DELETE message.
