Email Security functionality depends on your plan. If your account interface and settings differ from the ones described below, read the Knowledge Base article Advanced Email Security For Exchange
Email security policies can be configured to help protect your users' mailboxes from email threats. Policies include rules and settings for:
- spam and attachment filtering
- managing safe and blocked senders lists
- protecting users from malicious links in messages
Policies can be assigned to domains, distribution lists or mailboxes.
To create a new policy, click on Add policy. Then, you will be prompted to enter a policy name and choose an existing policy to copy the settings from. Once the policy name and the settings are selected, hit Add policy.
Once the policy is added, you will be asked to add members, configure settings and set the policy priority.
Advanced Email Security allows you to set a policy priority. If multiple policies apply to a mailbox, the policy with the highest priority will be applied.
To change the priority order, simply select the policy and use drag-and-drop feature to move it.
Note: a maximum of 50 policies is allowed. In order to create a new policy, you must first delete an existing one.
