The Detailed report templates that you create appear in the Report Templates table. You can modify the template at any time.
If you configure the template to create reports on demand, you can generate the report from the Reports > Report Templates page. If you configure the template to generate a scheduled report, Mail Security automatically generates the report based on the schedule that you specify.
Consider limiting the date range to less than 30 days. Generating a Detailed report over 30 days might consume large amounts of computer memory, depending on the number of violations that are in the report database.
Mail Security supports emailing reports that are 5 MB or smaller only. You can view reports that are larger than 5 MB on the Reports page. Mail Security logs the generation of reports that are larger than 5 MB to the Windows Application Event Log
Mail Security provides a wizard that helps you configure your report template.
