Include email recipient in DLP justification message

Creating an email protection rule and would like the email recipient to be shown in the justification message when an email is flagged by DLP. Is there a placeholder which will show the email's recipient in the justification message? Or is there another way to do this?


If I use the placeholder %s then I get the email subject. However, I am more interested in the email recipient(s).

Re: Include email recipient in DLP justification message

Looks like no easy option. I will do some research on it and will post a reply.

Re: Include email recipient in DLP justification message

I can only think of available values below:

• %c for classifications
• %r for rule-set name
• %v for vector (for example, Email Protection, Web Protection, DLP Prevent)
• %a for action (for example, Block)
• %s for context value (for example, file name, device name, email subject, URL)
• %f for context value in McAfee DLP Prevent (for example, file name, email subject, email body, and so on)
%f for context value in McAfee DLP Endpoint (for example, full path, URL)

Perhaps you want to try d - for destination as define in automatic mail notification
