      Note
      Note
      When this option is selected, Deep Discovery Email Inspector will check if the IP address of Deep Discovery Email Inspector and hosts are in the same address class and subnet.
      • Deep Discovery Email Inspector will only allow hosts to relay messages if they are in the same address class and subnet.
        For example:
        • Class A: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 10.1.2.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 10.1.2.x.
          Class B: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 172.31.2.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 172.31.x.x.
          Class C: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 192.168.10.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 192.168.10.x.
      • Deep Discovery Email Inspector will not allow hosts to relay messages if they are in the same address class, but not in the same subnet.
        For example:
        • Class A: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 10.1.2.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 11.2.3.x.
          Class B: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 172.31.2.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 172.32.x.x.
          Class C: The Deep Discovery Email Inspector IP address is 192.168.10.3, and the hosts’ IP address is 192.168.11.x.
