What’s new – Sep 18, 2023
Earlier this year, we released the aggressive mode for Anti-spam, a feature that allows you to choose from the 5 levels of catch rate for Suspected Spam. This feature combined with the ability to configure different catch rate levels for different external senders/domains and for different internal users, groups, and domains of Email Security Policy gives you a greater customization and more granular control over Suspected Spam catch rates.
We have now enhanced the feature by making the Suspected Spam levels applied to messages visible in Message History. Unlike earlier, when only the email pertaining to the level set in the policy was marked Suspected Spam, now an email matching any level is marked Suspected Spam – regardless of the level set in the Email Security Policy. Furthermore, you can filter your messages in the Message History by the level of Suspected Spam. We are confident that this visibility into the level of Suspected Spam of messages will also help you determine the relevance of each level, thereby guiding you in tweaking the levels configured in your Email Security policies to meet your email security needs.
Watch the video at end of this post to familiarize yourself with this enhancement.
Applies to the following Sophos products
Filter by the level
In the Message History, you filter the messages by the level of Suspected Spam applied to message received, as indicated in the screenshot below.
Details of the levels
In the Message Details page, you can view the Suspected Spam level applied to the message vis-à-vis the level configured for each recipient of the message. As highlighted in the screenshot below, there are 3 pieces of information relevant to the Suspected Spam level for the message:
- This message was marked Suspected Spam under level, L4
- For the user John Doe, the policy is configured for level, L2
- Thus, the message was delivered successfully to John Doe
