Specifying Scope of SendersWhile creating or editing a rule, you can specify the senders for whom this rule will apply when they send messages (Fig.1). You also can add exceptions to the scope of senders for whom the rule will never apply.
|Fig .1. Configuring the Scope of Senders.|
|Fig.2. Criteria for adding senders.|
The scope of senders can be defined using several criteria (Fig.2.):
You specify one or several addresses or parts of addresses (Fig.3). The senders can be defined by adding full or partial SMTP addresses. While adding senders' addresses you can use one or several asterisk signs (*), which substitute any string of characters. For instance, by adding support*@*co.uk you decide to apply the rule for all addresses starting with support from domains ending in co.uk. In the bottom field of Scope of Senders form, you can define exceptions to the list of e-mail addresses.
While configuring the program, you can decide whether the rule will apply only for the main SMTP address, or also for the remaining ones, the so-called proxy or alias addresses.
|Fig.3. Specifying addresses or parts of addresses of senders.|
You specify one or more organizational units of Active Directory (i.e. containers) the senders must belong to (Fig.4) FOR the rule to apply. Organizational units can also be added to the exceptions in the lower field of the Scope of Senders form.
|Fig.4. Specifying Active Directory organizational units in the scope of senders.|
Active Directory Group
You specify one or several Active Directory groups in the scope of senders (Fig.5). The rule will no apply if the sender belongs to the Active Directory group entered in the exceptions list.
|Fig.5. Specifying Active Directory Group the sender must belong to.|
Active Directory User
You can add senders by specifying particular Active Directory objects (Fig.6). You can also add a user to the exceptions list in the bottom field of the Scope of Senders if you do not want to apply the rule to this user.
|Fig.6. Specifying Active Directory users in the scope of senders|
Active Directory Filter
You specify the properties necessary for Active Directory User Object representing the message sender (Fig.7). For instance, you can set the rule to apply if the City variable of the sender meets certain value or contains selected text. The filter can work according to one of the two principles: "one of the conditions is met" or "all conditions are met".
In the example from Fig.7. the rule will apply to all senders for whom the City variable equals New York or includes NY. The condition will be met for senders whose City value is for example: New York NY, Manhattan, NY Brooklyn, but it will not be met for example for senders from Los Angeles.
|Fig.7.Specifying Active Directory properties that the senders must meet.|
In a similar way we can define which attributes an Active Directory user object that represents the sender of the message must have for the rule not to be applied. You specify the appropriate Active Directory field filter in the lower field of the Scope of Senders.
You can specify multiple addresses in the fields of individual criteria, separating them with semicolons.
If you want the rule to apply to messages sent from the main domain and not from its subdomains, include this domain in the list with the @ (at) sign: *@company.com
ATo apply the rule to all senders, regardless of the address they are sent from, in the upper field of the scope of senders form enter the asterisk (*) only or leave it empty.
Each criterium specified above has its equivalent in the exceptions list - the lower field of the Scope of Senders.
If a user sends a message from a mail client and connects to the Exchange Server using SMTP protocol, this user is identified by the SMTP address specified in the properties of the given account in the mail client, and not by the account s/he uses to log in to SMTP server.
