Recipient

The Recipient condition is used to define the scope of recipients that once met will trigger the action to be processed by the program.

To define the scope of recipients within the Conditions tab, expand the Field's context menu and choose Recipient (Fig. 1.).

Warning

If you do not add recipients to the list of conditions, the rule will apply to messages received by all recipients. 

There are two factors (Fig. 2.) that need to be configured within this condition:

  • Operator - enables definition of how the condition will be executed. The execution method may be only set to true.

In this particular condition, the operator may be set to trigger the action if a recipient:

  • has a specific email address
  • matches Active Directory user
  • matches Active Directory group (the condition is met only if a message is sent directly to a chosen AD group)
  • matches Active Directory filter
  • belongs to Active Directory group
  • belongs to blacklist
  • belongs to Organizational Unit
  • is internal (the recipient's mailbox is an AD mailbox), external (the recipient's mailbox is hosted outside the organization) or disabled in Active Directory (the recipient's mailbox is disabled in AD)
  • Actual condition Value - here you define the expected value of the condition that will trigger the rule to apply the action.

Operator: belongs to blacklist

This operator lets you select the blacklist whose members will be protected against receiving unwanted messages from the particular senders. Once you select Recipient belongs to blacklist, you will have to choose the blacklist container from a separate editor (Fig. 3.).

The blacklists' containers are managed using the Recipients blacklists tab accessible from Settings in the Administration Panel's ribbon. Note that this condition will be useful only with the Insert Signature or Insert Disclaimer actions. Furthermore, to assure the chosen recipients are unsubscribed from the mailing lists, apart from configuring the rule with the aforementioned actions and conditions, you will also have to create the additional rule with the Block message action. Only the combination of such rules, will protect recipients against the unwanted messages reaching their mailboxes.

Info

Please note that the value field depends on the operator and its definition type may differ in regards to the chosen operator.
