    • Sophos Puremessage Exchange installation as Exchange Admin

      To install Sophos Puremessage for Exchange you have to be Domain Admin. In a bigger Windows Domain with seperate groups for Exchange and Windows Adminstration, it can be very complicated to install Puremessage for Exchange, as you always need a Domain-Admin. It would be more easy if the Exchange-Admingroup can install/upgrade Sophos Puremessage.

      • Unattended installation Sophos Puremessage

        It would be useful to install Sophos Puremessage for Exchange unattended. If you have a bigger Exchange Installation with several MBX-Server it is very annoying to upgrade.

        • Sophos Email Appliance

          Set Maximum queue lifetime and Bounce queue lifetime to be able to except hours or minutes instead of just days to allow an email that is deferred due to email address typo etc to be bounced back within 1 or 2 hours or a half hour instead of 1 to 5 days. The fields doesn't except decimal places. If you set the value to be entered in minutes 1 day would be 1440 minutes and 5 days would be 7200 minutes. This way if a customer wants to set the bounce queue lifetime to 1/2 day they would just set…

          • WAF: Enable TLS protocol selection, support Server 2003

            UTM WAF helps protect older and weaker servers, but only if it can connect to them. OpenSSL does not handshake properly with Server 2003 for reasons that I cannot fully explain. Based on SSL Labs test reports, the problem is mostly unique to OpenSSL clients. However, the connection works perfectly if you prevent OpenSSL from attempting a TLS1.2 connection (e.g. openssl s_client -connect server:443 -no_tls1_2) Please provide protocol selectivity so that the WAF connection to a "Real" (internal) web server can be configured to match what that webserver can accept.

              • dynamic response to Intrusion Prevention detection

                UTM already knows how to block IPs that perform port scanning: why not to block also attackers as soon as Intrusion Prevention detect them ? (this way, also unknown attack packets are dropped imediately). I noticed detections are very often 4 or 5 types only, but I exclude exploiting tools try only 5 types. IP should be banned for a customizable timeout ... like 5 minutes to 4 hours: if the attacked ip (or firewalled ip-range) doesn't answer, they surely go elsewhere. Thank you

                  • Synchonze lLogging between nodes

                    This is not a feature request, it is a bug report. But supoort disagrees.

                    Logging between nodes should really be synced. Obviously not the really node specific stuff, but for example the Network Usage logs are completely useless if one ore more fail-overs have occurred in the time frame you're looking at. Something which in case of yearly, is always.

                    But this goes for all log files. Want to check how often someone has logged in in the past month: can't be done it there has been an update (because then there will have been a fail-over as well.

                    Please…

                      It would be nice to have the ability to activate a report to the internal receiver of an e-mail when his message is blocked (quarantained) because it contains a blocked extension (doc, xls, zip and so on)

                            • 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…

                                • Powershell Module for searching logs

                                  It would be great if there were a Powershell module to allow doing granular log searches. I often like to look for specific information and in differing ways. The time to obtain this information from support is far too inefficient. For instance, I was just looking for all messages in the log with the .email top level domain.

                                  • Allow backups to be download on secondary SUM

                                    If the SUM is the primary SUM on the UTM, you can set it to back up daily, etc.

                                    The secondary SUM, doesn't have this option. It doesn't need to have control like the primary SUM, just get back ups.

                                    • AD Prefetch schedule

                                      Presently AD Prefetch schedule isn't picking up newly created accounts in AD. Every time we need to click on "Prefetch now" to have the new accounts in UTM instead. It would be nice if the prefetch schedule could pick up newly created users in AD automatically.

                                        Blocking TOR-MEEK would be a great feature.

                                        The application filters do not block any MEEK-REFLECT connections, the only way stopping clients to use TOR is taking them offline or blocking the entire internet including google/apple and microsoft wich isnt a option...soooo ? plz? :)

                                        • WebAdmin: ACL / Role for Time Period Definitions

                                          We are a service provider, fully managing a Sophos HA cluster at a customer site. Customer logins to the system should be limited to ONLY change Time Period Definitions, because
                                          we created several firewall-rules that are used to allow external third parties (eg. software and hardware support providers) access to internal client systems at the customers network. These are temporarily activated and deactivated using time period definitions.

                                          Now it would be very beneficial if there would be an ACL to grant access to our customer to only modify the time period definitions so they can enable access to their external…
