Microsoft Dynamics Outlook Plugin and CSV export being blocked

In the past week we have run across couple of issues..... things were working just fine but then they were not.

Two issues so far:

- Dynamics/F&O users have the ability to export to CSV.

- Dynamics/F&O users were able to use the Dynamics Outlook plugin.

These functions stopped working and there are no event triggered in Sophos indicating this is an issue.  The only way we found Sophos was causing this was to disable Sophos and both issues went away.

We end up creating web exceptions for these issues, but this is a constant issue when MS keeps changing the IP/Domain names.

Anybody else experiencing these issues and if so, how are you fixing these issues once and for all?

  • Thanks for following up. 

    Most issues are not due to Sophos explicitly blocking communication but because Sophos adds a scanning step. This can cause unexpected behaviour with apps. Adding exclusions typically means that scanning will be bypassed entirely.

    We're always looking for ways to streamline the troubleshooting and problem-resolution process. Should you experience issues in the future, the "Product Analysis" and "Packet Capture" tabs of the Endpoint Self-Help tool may help. 

    If you find that your support case is stalling out, or if you feel that you’re not being assisted in a reasonable manner, you can also request that your case be escalated by reaching out to your Sophos Account Manager. Let me know if you'd like assistance in finding out who that may be for your account.
    Our community support engineers are also happy to raise issues to the concerned management teams where necessary, please feel free to send me a private message.
