spamBlocker with Multiple Proxies

You can configure more than one SMTP, IMAP, or POP3-proxy policy to use spamBlocker. This enables you to create custom rules for different groups in an organization. For example, you can allow all email to your management employees and use a spam tag for the marketing team.

If you want to use more than one proxy policy with spamBlocker, your network must use one of these configurations:

  • Each proxy policy must send email to a different internal email server.
  • You must set the external source or sources that can send email for each proxy policy.

The Firebox uses the HTTPS protocol to send requests to the spamBlocker server. If traffic from the Firebox must go through a perimeter firewall to reach the Internet, make sure the firewall does not block HTTPS traffic.
