Internet Gatekeeper custom filter priorities / debug

Hello,

 

I have a custom rules which is supposed to allow mails from an entity, even if they have an encryptetd attachment, which is otherwise forbidden via POLICY_BLOCK_ENCRYPTED.

However, this doesn't seem to trigger. Therefore some questions (I tried the adminguide and searched the forum, but didn't find info there):

- Should my whitelist via custom filter override the POLICY_BLOCK_ENCRYPTED?

- How can I debug filters?

 

(PS: This is about Internet Gatekeeper v 5.30.)

    Hi,


    Thank you for engaging us. 

     

    In the current implementation, whitelisting using "custom filtering rules" feature affects only spam detection. Any action done by anti-virus scanning (includes e.g POLICY_BLOCK_ENCRYPTED) cannot be handled by custom filtering rules.

     

    Note, we have a feature request available for implementing a similar function but this is not yet scheduled.

     

    With regards to debugging filters, if you need more information, please submit a support ticket and we can discuss this option further.
