DLP Policy

May I have some suggestions on how to block certain outgoing email messages?   

I want to block them based on an certain destination email domain.

Based on the knowledge I have (from several years ago),m this would be an Envelope rule.

But I see that there are "DLP" (data loss prevention) notifications available in this version of Ironmail (6.7.2).

Re: DLP Policy

DLP notifications only work if the box is connected to a DLP device such as the Mcafee Reconnex DLP.

To block outbound messages to a certain domain via envelope analysis:

1. Compliance -> Manage rules -> Add New

     Monitored Field : Recipient

                     Type: Domain

                     Data: <domain>

                  Action: Drop/Quarantine

    Quarantine Type: < the queue you want to quarantine messages to like "content analysis">

         Action Value: if quarantining then set it to 0

2. Compliance -> Apply Rules -> Add New (if you already have an outbound rule then you dont need to add a new one)

Apply to: Global

Directon: Outbound
Check the enable box for the rule you just created and then click submit.

That should take care of it.

Re: DLP Policy

Thanks for the clarification on the DLP feature.   We may implement another vendor's DLP later this year, but we don't have McAfee's solution.

I will try your suggestion on blocking the outbound message.
