Not sure if I agree with doing this as there are many things that could make HTTP/1.0 request, but the property would be:
What email application do you use?
We had the same issues and what you want to do it just allow that application through without authentication. Do not open for all HTTP/1.0!! This means all the traffic will still be scanned with gateway AV. We use Lotus Notes.

Perhaps I need to revisit this, but last I recall, outlook can do this if you are doing trans auth (time based) and Outlook shares the user-agent with IE.
With lotus notes, Jonathan is correct, you could just allow it for that user-agent.
Hi Jon (Jont717),
We are using Lotus Notes. Is it possible for you to show me how you were able create the rule allow rule for this?
Thank you for you time.
Not sure how you are authenticating users, but we use WCCP.
Here is what you want to do. Under your authentication rule, you will want to add a section for User Agent and create a User Agent Whitelist. (see image). If you look in your log files, you will see when Lotus notes tries to connect to the Internet. The log file will show you which User-Agent it is using. For me it is Lotus-Notes. Put this in your User Agent Whitelist. The picture explains it all.
Basically, it says...if user agent is anything else than what is in the User Agent Whitelist, than authenticate them. If it is in the list, skip authentication.
That's all you have to do. Also, if you still want your URL filtering policy to apply to unauthenticated users, you will need to create a copy of your URL filter policy for unauthenticated users. That way, any browsing done with Lotus Notes will still be controlled by your company policy.
