  1. Automatically Blacklist emails by replying and adding [blacklist] to subject line

    Most users do not have the time to log into the user portal just to blacklist emails. It would be great if the users could reply to an email they want to blacklist and have it automatically added to the blacklist just by modifying the subject, perhaps by adding [blacklist]?. This is already possible with encrypting emails, why can’t we just add blacklisting to the list?

    i.e. Email comes in from spam@spammersfakedomain.com with a subject line of: i like spam.
    I reply but change the subject to: [blacklist] and hit send. This gets picked up by the UTM and adds…

    • Sophos Management Appliance SNMP Monitoring

      Hi,

      A Platinum customer has requested that we have a SNMP Monitoring feature that we can set/enable within the Sophos Management Appliance (SMA). This does exist on the Web Appliance's but not on the SMA.

      They would like this feature so they can be informed of the Health of the device as they recently had an issue where it ran out of resources (backed-up data since 2013).

      Regards,

      • Add "Send me a secure copy" when using SPX encryption

        With the Sophos Email Appliance, there is an option to "Send me a secure copy" when replying to an email. There is no such option with the UTM. This is a required feature for legal so that they can prove that they actually sent correspondence.

          The very nice OTP module of the UTM should be available in the XG, too.

          • Sophos Email Appliance v4.0.0.0

            With the current ciphers it only allows the appliance to be graded a B from ssllabs.com due to weak ciphers. The ciphers in question are the DHE ciphers and if you would remove the DHE weak ciphers and add the ECDHE ciphers it would raise the grade to an A.

              • Hotspot redirect for clients starting with HTTPS pages

                When using the hotspot functionality of Sophos Wifi units, users should be redirected to an agreement page, no matter what site they try going to. This works properly if the connecting user is attempting to load an HTTP page, but if the first page they happen to load is an HTTPS page, the page simply times out. This makes the HotSpot feature almost unusable, as a majority of webpages are now HTTPS. There is already a suggestion for this from several years ago, that said it would be released in version 9.3 which it has not. That is why I…

                • IPv6 SSO in STAS

                  Currently the STAS implementation only supports IPv6, when you enter an IP Address in the "Networks to be monitored", an error message of "Invalid Network IP" is thrown.

                  This is preventing a native IPv6 rollout as we are unable to apply user based rules to IPv6 traffic (as no users are authenticated...).

                  • Accept own domain only from internal interfaces

                    There is a leak in the mail protection.
                    Whan a spammer connects to the UTM and uses our own domain as the sender, the UTM will not block the e-mail.

                    It would be nice to accept e-mails from our own domain only through internal interfaces and not the WAN interface.

                      • Pi-Hole

                        I'd like to see Pi-Hole integrated into the UTM. Pi-Hole is an application that allows you to filter DNS requests based on settings you can set yourself. Its very light weight and should integrate very well within the UTM.

                                • Make an API for Sandstorm sample submissions

                                  Please make it possible to send and get Sandstorm sample submissions using an API. Customers with valid sandstorm licenses for Sophos UTM or classic Sophos Appliances can then use scripts for other solutions to submit samples and retrieve results.

                                  Another idea is to create a seperate license for this API usage. There can be many implementation possibilities for Sandstorm API scripting, sending samples and automating processess depending on the submission results.

                                      • Change the Notification text from "Message delivery incomplete"

                                        If the sender send me an e-mail with a forbidden file extension he gets the following notification:
                                        "Betreff: Message delivery incomplete

                                        Your message to the following recipients was quarantined:

                                        <xyz@web.de>, quarantine reason: File Extension (zip)

                                        Please contact your IT administrator for further assistance."

                                        The idea would be change this text of the alert.

                                          Hi! I know that "mails" are just a part of the UTM, but the way it is solved now, no one really can use it.

                                          1) Quarantine reports are always written "in the same language" as the admin panel. Since all manual found in the internet are in english i think 95% of all users use the admin panel in english language. For admins this is usually no problem. But that differs with the "end user". The end users usually need their "native" language. So why is there no possibility to set up "a different report language". U can set…
