Filtering E-Mails with double Addresses in the "From" field

Hello! Smiley Wink

Is there a way to use MSME 8.6 to filter emails with more than one address in the "From" field?

Example:
From: <employee@mydomain.com>, Name <chyepez@lanecuadorsa.com>

The first address should imply that the e-mail comes from an employee. The second address is the real sender address of the spammer.

Normal mails always have only one address in the "From" field, so it is a good idea to filter them and intercept dangerous mails.

I think it would work with regex. Can MSME do this?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi,

As you described generally FROM field contains only one email entry and IF the spammer is adding 2 entries on from field then we can block only using the SPAM module by SPAM submission. Using regex in MSME, we can not block such emails.

Hi, thanks for your answer.


Do you mean the "Gateway" option in the Policy Manager? There are a lot of rules like "FROM_EMPTY", "FROM_DRUG_USER" etc., but which one is the right one? And with that I can only increase the spam factor, but not blocking a mail, right?

Hi,  

 

True, We can not block the email using that option.
