How do I blacklist or drop a sending domain using Incoming Mail Policy and Content Filter? Introduction This document describes how to blacklist or drop a sending domain using Incoming Mail Policy and Content Filter.
How do I blacklist or drop a sending domain using Incoming Mail Policy and Content Filter? You cannot match a sender's email domain via the Blacklist Sender Group since it refers to the hostname or IP address of the connecting server, not necessarily the sender's domain. To blacklist or drop the mail when you see a certain sender's email address or domain, you need to use a combination of a new Incoming Mail Policy and Incoming Content Filter.
From the Web GUI, choose Mail Policies > Incoming Mail Policy. Result: What this is doing is creating an Incoming Policy for domains you want to block/drop. You may alternatively create a message filter from the CLI to block one or more email addresses. From the CLI, perform similar: Although you can type the filter in directly, most customers will keep it in a text editor on their desktop and use copy and paste to create it. ESA Message Disposition Determination.

Spoof Protection using Sender Verification. Introduction By default the Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) does not prevent the inbound delivery of messages that are addressed “from” the same domain going to the same domain.
This allows messages to be “spoofed” by outside companies that do legitimate business with the customer. Some companies rely on 3rd party organization to send email on behalf of the company such as Health Care, Travel Agencies, etc. Spoof Protection using Sender Verification. ESA Spoofed Mail Filtering. Introduction This document describes a problem that is encountered in the Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) when spam and fraudulent email enters into the network.
Possible solutions to this problem are also described. Prerequisites Requirements Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics: Bypass SBRS for Specific Hosts and Continue to Scan for SPAM. Introduction This document describes how to bypass SBRS for specific hosts and continue to scan for SPAM.
Symptoms Sender using a public MTA is being rejected due to SBRS reputation score shows a SBRS score of "poor" for the sending IP address A GREYLIST is useful to bypass SBRS filtering for a specific host, in the case the host name or sending MTA may encompass other senders other than your specific trusted user. Redirect the ironport queue in the event of internet connection failed. Redirectrecipients is only a temporary use command.
Once it processes the batch in current queue and finishes, the processing will resume back to normal operation. There are certain times when an ESA may need to be shutdown/rebooted, or, there is a need to transfer NDRs, delayed messages, or messages in queue from one ESA to another ESA attempt delivery. For this example, when issuing the command tophosts active_rcpts on the CLI, we can see that ESA #1 is has 104 messages in queue for cisco.com: Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) Anti-Spam Efficacy Checklist. The following procedures and recommendations are "best practices" for reducing the amount of spam getting through the ESA.
Note that every customer is different and that some of these recommendations may increase the number of legitimate emails classified as spam (false positives). Basic Setup Make sure Anti-Spam is turned on: Check to make sure that all your MX records (including lower priority) MX records are relaying mail through ESAs. Make sure your appliances have a valid Anti-Spam feature key. Ensure Anti-Spam is enabled for all appropriate incoming mail policies.
