  1. Puremessage for Exchange: Allow sender

    Company and Contact Information

    Company: CXtec

    Contact: Scott Brissenden

    Sophos Partner (if applicable):

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos PureMessage for Exchange

    Version in Production: 4.0.1

    Feature Request Summary

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?:
    Our accounts receivables receives a couple emails almost daily from a specific vendor that zips their attachments.
    We block all zip attachments and have to manually deliver these messages. It would be nice to specify if, on inbound emails, a specific sender can send attachments (or specific attachment types) without them being quarantined.

    How would you rate the importance of this feature?;…

    • LDAP/TOTP Server proxy

      Astaro/Sophos UTM will happily use an external LDAP server as an authentication source. And then apply over that its own TOTP layer. But it cannot provide that TOTP service to other devices, except for internal websites using the reverse proxy.

      I'd like to see Astaro offer an external facing LDAP service, as a proxy for other LDAP servers with an optional OTP enhancement. This would allow an organisation to provide a single OTP source against a whole range of services such as mail servers, file servers and much more; all without configuring multiple OTP servers.

      • TCP Connection Timeout - Modification

        It's important in case of using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) that the TCP connection timeout can be increased within the gui. At the moment only one unsupported workaround exists:

        cc [Enter]
        packetfilter [Enter]
        timeouts [Enter]
        ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait$ [Enter]

        It's an important feature if you use EAS.
        You will find more information about this topic here:

        • authentication

          I believe we should be able to specify which authentication server to use for each login method.
          It should not fallback to any other servers not specified.

            • Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table.

              Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table so that you can record what devices the address is for. This makes it easy to manage the list if a device is to be removed.

              It would also be nice if the wireless clients list could look up the comment and display it next to the record so you could see the device in the list.

              • Have SUM refuse UTM connections with shared password if none is set in SUM

                I had to reinstall my Hyper-V host some months ago. All works fine, but all my VMs have new MAC addresses. Result is that I cannot connect to my SUM virtual machine anymore. It boots up fine, but I guess it cannot find its old interface hardware.
                No problem, I wanted to upgrade it to 4.2 anyway. So I shut the old VM down and installed a new SUM VM. I thought I would copy the firewall rules by hand from one of the UTMs and then switch over to the new SUM. Of course, during install I gave it…

                • Mail manager hold

                  It would be nice if there was a "HOLD" feature in the mail manager. If there was a way to “hold” the e-mails on the UTM – when I was done checking the exchange servers, I could then “unhold” them and release the e-mails.

                    I wanted to tell you about how much I like Sophos Antivirus for Mac, Free Edition and realized that you could increase your customers input if you built in a Feedback menu item into the program itself.

                    • dhcp lease alive or dead - colour coding

                      would be nice to have colour coding in the DHCP Lease Table view to know immediately if leases are about to expire, expired, or alive/dead

                      about to expire = orange (light version of nice orange used in fonts for ui)
                      expired = grey
                      alive = green (light version similar as above: signifies machine is online)
                      dead = red (light version: signify machine is not online)

                      • Making visible the WLAN MAC Adress of the AP

                        It would be great to see the WLAN MAC adresses of the AP's directly in WebAdmin. This would be very helpful for example when creating a Heatmap .

                          It would be helpfull to have an Configuration Viewer to have a look inside old saved configuration or configuration from other users. The Viewers should have the same look like the original astaro Administration surface with all the menus.

                            Customer would like the same function in the UTM as per the Email Appliance to specify what types of messages they can add a banner to.

                            For example, they currently want to add a banner for outgoing messages with attachments only - not all messages.

                            • Direct Yubikey Support in OTP-Module

                              Hi there,

                              it would be great if the Yubikey (www.yubico.com) could be directly supported in OTP-Module of the Sophos UTM.

                              I know that all TOTP-Token (also the Yubikey) are supported. But you need a helper program to generate the TOTP with Yubikey because it doesn't have an internal clock.

                              It would be easier (for the enduser) if the Yubikey would be directly supported (For example, by authenticating through the Yubicloud like several Radius Servers do)

                              So the user would only need to press the button and the key (that Needs to be validated with the Yubicloud or through…

                                • List what Content Control Lists Rule triggered an email alert

                                  It would be nice if the "Notification regarding potentional leak of data" email sent to administrators would list what Content Control Lists Rule triggered the alert.

                                  I have my UTM set to allow the email but alert me when content is suspected to have been confidential. I was hoping to use the alerts to help decide what rules are going to be useful in my environment but without an indication of what triggered the alert the message is not very useful.

                                  It also appears that "potential" is spelled wrong in the subject line.

                                    • alphabetically sort web filtering subcategories when configuring categories

                                      The subcategories are not sorted when we setup a new category. Could it be possible to sort them alphabetically ?

                                      • UTM WAF - Custom HEADER

                                        Add the ability to add custom HTTP Headers while processing HTTP requests through the WAF

                                        The idea will allow me to "copy" header data
                                        e.g.: X-My-Custom-Header: $x-forwarded-proto

                                        Use case:
                                        When running a server behind 2 layered AWS ELB the first x-forwarded-proto header is overwritten by the 2nd layer, that mean that the application server cant see the original user requested protocol

                                        • Enable detection of suspicious files in Endpoint Security via the UTM

                                          Currently there are limited settings available to configure Sophos Endpoint Security and Control via the UTM. Any settings changed on the endpoints (eg to scan for 'suspicious files') is overridden whenever the UTM enforces it's policy. I would like to see an option added to the UTM to enable detection of 'suspicious files' (not just suspicious behaviour). Allowing all settings on the endpoints to be configured by the UTM would be even better!
