  1. SMTP: Multiple Hostnames/Interfaces Support

    With the SMTP proxy able to handle mail for many domains, allow the proxy to be configured so that an admin can assign a hostname per profile, or have the proxy report different hostnames per outgoing interface. (and the ability to specify which domains/profiles go out which interface). Allows for easier management and adoption of many smtp domains on a single asg appliance.

        • Mail Security: Granular Encryption Control

          If a user is enabled to use mail encryption there's currently only the option to sign all of their outgoing mail or nothing.

          I'd like to have another option to sign only mails for listed recipients (single [billg@microsoft.com] or domain [*@astaro.com])

          • Mail Protection: Attachment Stripping

            currently, there are several "action" options in the smtp anti-malware section: warn, blackhole, quarantine, and reject.
            We should have a "remove attachment" option which means the unwanted (infected or dangerous) attachment is stripped off the mail, but the rest of the mail is forwarded to the recipient.
            Two things are achieved with this: the recipient is informed immediately about the mail (he doesn´t have to wait for the next quarantine report). And he can see that a mail from a possibily importand business contact has been blocked and see at least the "uncritical" content

              • Mail Protection: Configure Interface/IP SMTP proxy listens on

                Enabling the mail-security features presently opens up a massive surface area on all interfaces and ips. I would like to see the mail-security feature include a more assignable approach where we can choose what interfaces/ips the mail-security will bind to.

                As we are a hosted service provider, the all or nothing functionality currently available is not ideal.

                • Mail Protection: Configurable SMTP Retry Timeout

                  A feature to allow administrators to reduce the SMTP relay Retry Timeout Limit would be excellent. Very useful for freight business who rely on email to get CON notes out quickly.

                  • Managing black list of local Sophos Email Security via Microsoft Outlook Add-In

                    Sophos Email Protection: Sophos already offers an MS Outlook add-in which allows the users to mark emails as junk mails. When users marks an emails as junk, an email is sent to Sophos Labs, gets analyzed and sometimes the sender is added to a global black list.

                    We would like to have another option when using this add-in. Whenever one of our users marks an email as junk, we want the sender added to the black list of our locally installed Sophos Email Security, not sent to Sophos Labs.
                    Other solutions like SonicWall Email Security offer this functionality already.

                    Right…

                    • Ability to block any subdomain in the Blacklisted address patterns

                      I would like to block *@*.example.com but it is impossible. Spammers use subdomain in order to bypass the filter.

                        All emails sent by internal users or from internal mail servers have their recipient addresses added to the MailSecuriy's whitelist.

                        That way if you send someone an email, you know that their reply will not be blocked.

                        • Mail Protection: SMTP Mail Address Rewriting

                          It is often useful to forward or rewrite incoming mail domains or specific email addresses to a user or usergroups. It would be great if the feature would be possible. For example *@domain-A.de forward to hans.muster@meinefirma.de, or all messages from info@domaene-B.de forward to Felix.Hubert@meinefirma.de,

                          • Mail Protection: Add "delete" and "blacklist" buttons (to the current "release" and "whitelist") to quarantine digest email

                            This would make user blacklisting significantly easier and reduce the amount of email held in the quarantine .

                              • Mailsecurity: Hide internal IP in Mailheader

                                It would be nice if the SMTP Proxy is removing the internal IP address in the "received from" line in the mailheader.

                                Header without private IP

                                • Mail Protection: Forward POP3 Emails via SMTP to internal Server

                                  There are still a many customers out there which use POP3 Mailboxes. If a customer want's to connect these POP3 mailboxes to an internal Microsoft Exchange server, they always need to purchase an add-on tool which needs to be licensed on a per user basis. The tool downloads the POP3 Emails and forwards them 1:1 to the internal Server via SMTP. Each POP3 Mailbox needs to be configured via server, username and password and an SMTP email address where the email gets forwarded to.. Integrate this add-on feature and minimize the cost and effort needed to install, manage and maintain…

                                  • Mail Protection: CRL for email encryption Certificate Authority (CA)

                                    Using the ASTARO builtin Certificate Authority (CA) for creating certificates for external mailboxes, you should have a CRL (Certificate Revocation List) for certificates that have been revoked or are no longer valid, and therefore should not be relied upon. It is like the CRL you can use to disable a certificate in the "Remote Access" section of the ASG.

                                    • Email notification to receipient for Quarantined emails

                                      This feature would be useful to clients that needs real-time notification for emails quarantined instead of waiting for the Quarantine Report or wondering why they have not received an important email that they are waiting for.

                                      • Mail Protection - Change WAN Inteface / Mail send over WAN x Interface

                                        There should be the possibility to configure the Mail Protection to use another WAN IP, if you have more than one.
                                        Also choose the WAN IP for individual domains, for example:
                                        Send mails from test1.de over WAN IP 1, send mails from test2.de over WAN IP2

                                        • Mail Protection: SMTP smarthost test button

                                          Troubleshooting SMTP Smarthost problems with authentication is hard to do. After changing config you need to send test mails to an outside domain and have to watch logging.

                                          Please add a test-button that can report:
                                          1. no connection (IP:Port not listening)
                                          2. connected, but user unknown (550)
                                          3. connected, but wrong password
                                          4. success
