Created: 21 Jan 2013 • Updated: 21 Jan 2013 | 2 comments

Hi,

I would like to know how the mail flow works for Symantec Brightmail 9.5.4 

i.e - which policies it takes first.

Currently I have SMG 9.5.4 below features are enabled

1. SMTP Connection  limit settings - enabled

2. Good Sender IP - enabled

3 Content Filtering (Block .exe, block sender, whitelist attachment) - enabled

4. Spam and Suspected Spam Score - enabled

5. Greylist Attachment (Quarantine)  - Enabled

 

Thanks

Hi,

have you seen in the Administrator Guide on page 41. The flow chart is quite useful to see the message flow and what modules will be active when.
