Managing Policy Rules

Rules are the means by which messaging policies are applied to message traffic in Trend Micro Email Security. At any time, administrators can see the rules that apply to their organizations, and make changes to the rules that comprise their policy, rename those rules, and create new rules. Each rule can be disabled if desired without losing its definition, and re-enabled at a later time.

Adding Policy Rules

Tip:

A new rule may be similar to the one you already have. In this case, it is easier to copy the rule and edit it rather than create a new rule from scratch.

Click Add.

  1. Define the basic information about the rule (rule name, whether it is enabled or not, and notes about the rule).

    See Naming and Enabling a Rule.

  2. Select the address(es), domains(s) or group(s) that the rule applies to.

    See Specifying Recipients and Senders.

  3. Select and configure criteria.

    See About Rule Scanning Criteria.

  4. Select and configure actions.
