After Sophos Central Email Gateway has checked a message, it forwards it to the mail server. Now, however, it may happen that the mail server is not available, for whatever reason. For this case, Sophos Central Email Gateway has a so-called emergency inbox. There, all undeliverable emails are temporarily stored for 14 days and can also be viewed at any time. As soon as the server is available again, these mails are delivered accordingly.
You must know that it is very easy to define the sender address of an e-mail completely freely. So I could theoretically take an email address from your address book and send you a message with this sender.
Especially in phishing attacks, this technique is often exploited to fool you into thinking that your bank or another trusted contact has sent an important message. If you know the sender, the chances that you will open the email and follow the instructions increase.
Sophos Central Email Gateway can detect such deceptions and alert you to them.
Sophos Central Email Gateway has powerful spam protection. Each message is analyzed and assigned a spam value. You can set the strength of the spam filter yourself via the preferences based on three levels. You also decide what to do with emails that are categorized as spam. You can either have them delivered anyway, move them to the quarantine or delete them immediately.
By default, blocked emails are moved to the quarantine. They then remain there for 30 days before being deleted. With Sophos Central Email Gateway, you can send a quarantine report to your employees on a regular basis. This lists all messages that have been blocked and not delivered. A quick check is all it takes to discover emails that have been mistakenly marked as spam.
Of course, any user can also view their quarantine, find out the reason for blocking or have the email forwarded to their mailbox.
