The following list explains the features that are new to IBM Lotus Protector for Mail Security 2.8, and tells you how to get started using those features.
File Attachment Analysis
You can set up Lotus Protector for Mail Security to inspect the content (keywords, regular expressions, URLs) of files attached to incoming email messages. You can enable this option from the Local Management Interface (LMI) at SMTP > File Attachment Analysis.
Global IP Access List
You can set up a list of IP addresses that are allowed or denied access at the start of an incoming SMTP connection. This feature is used by the Dynamic Host Reputation Filter and the DNSBL settings. You can enable this option from the LMI at SMTP > SMTP Configuration > Receiving SMTP > Global IP Access List.
You can set up Lotus Protector for Mail Security to provide realtime virus scanning services to ICAP-compatible clients such as IBM® Connections, IBM Lotus Quickr®, or Squid 3.x. You can enable this option from the LMI at System > ICAP Server.
Rejection handling for IP addresses using the Silent Drop option
You can set up the SMTP service to reject an incoming email message, but not notify the sender of the email that the email message has been rejected. This method is used to prevent spammers from probing for valid email addresses.
This feature is used by the Dynamic Host Reputation Filter, the Global IP Access List, Recipient Verification, and Zero Level Analysis (ZLA).
Configure system routes manually
You can use the Manage network routes using Management Interface option to influence how system routes are handled by the Routing policy.
When you enable the option, Lotus Protector for Mail Security uses the system routes that you have configured in the LMI. When you disable this option, all system routes are left as is so that you can implement special routing settings that are not currently available in the LMI. You can access this feature in the LMI at System > Routes.
