  1. SPam Filter: More granular reporting of what causes spam to be marked "confirmed" via "SA"

    Users would like to be able to gather more information on the cause of an email marked as "Confirmed Spam" to be able to effectively troubleshoot this issue.

    We are having an issue where large amount of spam as being "Confirmed" and the only reason reported is the "sa". The domain does not appear to be on any blacklists, spf and mx records appear to be correct, and the general configuration is correct. . . Support basically said they had no way of gathering or providing a deeper level of cause. As such, it seems that the only troubleshooting method…

      • Quota for Applications

        The new quota feature is good for desktops, but for mobile devices that utilise apps , it doesn't work. To have quotas on apps would be the next update that a lot of people like myself would need and use.

                • UTM Multiple Site Location User Portal Mail Replication

                  I ran into a deployment issue where a client has two office locations (i.e.: HQ and DR) with mail servers at each location for resiliency. We deployed a HA Pair at both HQ and DR of the UTM330 with a SUM however I found a major feature lacking within the User Portal for Mail Quarantine, White List, & Black List. Because each site location accepts mail messages can come from either HQ or DR meaning the user has to manage two separate portals for their Mail Quarantine, White List, & Black List. There is no single instance that allows the…

                    • Fix UTM Licensing To Expire IPv6 Temporary Addresses Faster

                      Fix UTM licensing to "age out" faster the many IPv6 "temporary addresses" that are created by most devices (running Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux). As an example, I have 12 devices connected to my network, but because I run in an IPv4/IPv6 environment, UTM is currently counting 113 IP addresses and sending me daily warnings that I have exceeded my license count and no new devices can be added to the network.

                      In the forum post linked below I have gone into greater detail, but the issue essentially is that in 2014 almost every IPv6-capable device is generating…

                            • Would like a feature to block outgoing traffic that exceeds a certain threshold.

                              Our old software (SurfCop on TMG) had the ability to block outgoing traffic that exceeded a certain threshold. The thinking is that if we do get hacked, the hacker would only be able to upload a certain number of docs before being blocked. This was a 24 hour limit and the clock would reset. It was by person or IP address. It is a great tool to have.

                                    In Windows DHCP service I can add a comment for each MAC address. Would be nice to have this in the UTM too.

                                    • Reverse proxy add encodedslashes option

                                      Please provide the option in the Reverse proxy to enable encodedslashes for a specific virtual webserver.

                                      Because some web applications use for example %2F for a slash and the reverse proxy cannot translate this back to / because of allowencodedslashes is not enabled by default. So this results in a 404 error.

                                      http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#allowencodedslashes

                                      When changing the configuration file of the reverseproxy it is working fine, but the configuration is overwritten all the time. So a checkbox in the Webadmin to enable this option would be nice.

                                        A external sender has to type a captcha during his first email send to a internal domain managed by utm to release the email sent.

                                        • Web Protection: Youtube and blocking specific categories

                                          Coming from another vendor one of the features I like/had was that I could block categories within YouTube. We are a School District that needs to access YouTube (YouTube for Education has limited content). It would be nice to setup a policy or rule to be able to block these YouTube Categories.

                                          Currently available categories are:
                                          • Film
                                          • Autos
                                          • Music
                                          • Animals
                                          • Sports
                                          • Shortmov
                                          • Travel
                                          • Games
                                          • Videoblog
                                          • People
                                          • Comedy
