Benefits of filtering outbound emails through Xeams
Xeams is capable of filtering inbound as well as outbound emails for your company. Filtering
outbound email is as important as filtering inbound messages therefore, it is strongly
recommended you configure your primary email server to send messages through Xeams when
sending messages to users on the Internet.
- Auto Learning - Inbound email filtering improves when you send outbound emails.
For example, inbound messages from a friend or business colleague receives credit when
Xeams has previously encountered outbound emails.
- Message Archiving - Since every message is saved and indexed in Xeams, it is
very easy to find an older message by searching it by content or sender/recipient
- Security Alerts - Xeams will generate security alerts to the administrator
if it detects unusually activity or a high volume of message being sent out
- Outbound Diagnostics - Xeams contains outbound diagnostic tests that can
notify administrators if one or more configuration is incorrect, allowing them to pro-actively
fix problems on their network
- Deliver Status - It is very easy to check if Xeams was able to deliver the outbound email to the next SMTP server.
This can be done by looking at the status icons, or referring
to log files such
Preparing Xeams for Outbound Emails
Assume you are using Microsoft Exchange as your primary email server, which is running on 192.168.1.20. You will have to add Exchange's IP address
in following locations in Xeams.
- Whitelisted IP - Go to Whitelisted IP Addresses under Filter Management and add your Exchange Server's IP address
- Trusted IP - Go to Auto-Learn Sender Filter under Filter Management/Adaptive Filters, click the button
for Manage Trusted IP Addresses and add Exchange's IP address
- Relaying - Go to SMTP Configuration under Server Configuration and click Relaying. Add Exchange's IP among
the Relaying list.
Configuring your actual email server
Finally, you have to configure your actual email server to send messages through Xeams. Although every SMTP server is different and it is
impossible to give instructions for each individual server on this page, this feature is typically referred to as Smart Host
or Relay Server
in many systems. For example, in Exchange you have to configure the Send Connector
to use a Smart Host by specifying Xeams' IP address.
