This is our spam / virus filter update for customers on the mx1 / filtering cluster. The information is brought to you by our vendor, SpamExperts.

 What’s new this week: 

Working with quarantined messages in log searches
The web interface offers a “spam quarantine” page, where you may inspect the messages that have been quarantined, and release any incorrectly classified messages.  This page offers some ability to search for messages, but is generally fairly limited.  The log search page, however, offers many ways to search for messages, and has many options around what information is displayed for each of the matching messages.

You’re now able to view, release, and remove messages from the quarantine directly from the log search results.  This functionality works just like it does on the quarantine page, but you’re able to combine it with the far more flexible options around searching and displaying results that the log search page offers.  To perform any of these actions, simply select the appropriate choice from the action drop-down on the far left of the row – like the quarantine page, you can also select multiple rows, and perform the action on all of them at once, using the “Apply to selected” choice at the bottom of the page.  Note that these choices will only appear for messages that were quarantined.


Filtering (services):

  • Resolved issue with the archiving storage definitions, passing a object as the timestamp value, rather than a datetime.datetime (#23346)
