5 IKARUS mail.security
Apply for new routes or edit existing routes by clicking on the red plus at the bottom right. Click on “Settings” to access the settings for the respective set.
Configure a disclaimer by setting the option to enabled. The disclaimer is added to all transmitted e-mails.
188.8.131.52 Virus filter
Define which actions should be taken in case of a virus detection and how to deal with password-protected archives.
184.108.40.206 Attachment filter
Block certain file types, also based on the sender. If this is to apply to all senders, enter “*” as a placeholder.
220.127.116.11 HTML filter
The HTML filters build on each other. The auto conversion turns a pure HTML e-mail into an e-mail consisting of HTML and text.
“Remove HTML”: Deletes any HTML part from the email. To remove only certain parts, distinguish between tags that should be deleted and scripts. It is also possible to remove all scripts.
“Remove Notify Requests” removes read and receipt confirmations from emails.
“Convert TNEF” converts winmail.dat files back to standard emails.
“Advanced URL Defense” scans links not only when an email is received, but again each time the URL is clicked. This means that even delayed attacks are detected and blocked.
18.104.22.168 Spam filter
Each email that is checked by IKARUS goes through various filters and is evaluated according to different criteria (e.g. SPF, dynamic word filters, rules…). The more plus points an email collects, the higher the probability that it is “real” spam. You can use the slider to determine how sensitively IKARUS mail.security should react.
The sliders shows the limit values for “possible spam”. Below you can determine how IKARUS mail.security should deal with “spam” and “possible spam”.
The example in the screenshot shows the following settings:
- 0 points to 3 points: ok – no spam, no marking of the emails
- 3 points to 7 points: possible spam
- 7 points to 10 points: spam
22.214.171.124 Spam rules
Define rules to categorise emails, for example when the sender is on several blacklists but the recipient still wants to receive these emails.
- Email section: Define the section the filter should apply to
- Sender: The actual sender of the email that must not necessarily correspond to the sender displayed in the e-mail programme.
- Recipient: Shows the address to which the email is sent. Allows to choose select a single address to be excluded from the spam filter.
- Subject: Identify a certain text that is part of the subject.
- Text: Identify a certain text sequence that can be found in the main part of the email.
- Content: Shows the content of the email. It identifies the string used to perform a search for sender, recipient, subject or text. Note that the search is only performed for the string, without taking into account what comes before or after it (e.g. searching to “count” will also including “accounting” in the search results”.
- Input: defines how to deal with the email if it was detected by the spam filter. Choose between regular email, possible spam or spam.
- Counter: Counts how many times a rule was applied since its implementation. The reset-button will reset all counters.
- Action: Rules can be deleted, edited or shifted upwards or downwards. Please note that the rules will apply from top to bottom using the first applicable rule. This means that the order of the rules is of importance.
5.2 IKARUS mail.security – outgoing
The settings for outgoing routes (“Outgoing”) are identical to the settings for incoming routes described above.
Here, too, there are detailed settings for the disclaimer and the desired behaviour when a threat is found in an e-mail.
5.3 IKARUS mail.security – search
Advanced email search and the Greylist log are combined in one search. Well-known search criteria such as delivery status or infections are also included.
5.4 IKARUS mail.security – S/MIME
Under Certificates you can see the number of available IKARUS S/MIME certificates and the number of certificates currently in active use. The graphic also shows the number of mailboxes configured in IKARUS mail.security.
In the table you will find an overview of your maliboxes and your available IKARUS S/MIME licences as well as their status and allocation. The overview contains all email addresses that have been configured as a known mailbox in IKARUS mail.security in an incoming route. The list can be filtered by mailbox, domain, and S/MIME status. By clicking on the Export button, the overview can be exported as a CSV file or Excel spreadsheet.
Inactive means that no certificate has been assigned to this mailbox and therefore no signing of the outgoing e-mail takes place.
Active means that this mailbox uses one of your SMIME certificates and outgoing emails are automatically signed when sent via IKARUS mail.security.
In deactivation means that the certificate of this mailbox has been revoked. After a revocation period of maximum 14 days, the certificate is released and reappears in the list of your available certificates.
Under Actions, certificates can be requested for the respective mailbox by clicking on the + sign. Click on the upload icon to upload external certificates from third parties to manage them via IKARUS mail.security. Note: Imported certificates are used like IKARUS S/MIME certificates and thus also counted towards the IKARUS contingent.
