Configuring Message Delivery Settings

The following procedure explains how to configure message delivery settings for downstream mail servers.

For more information about configuring connections, importing message delivery settings, and setting message rules, see Mail Settings.

Specify settings for email message delivery to Deep Discovery Email Inspector downstream mail servers. Deep Discovery Email Inspector checks the recipient domains or email addresses, determines destination servers, and sends the message to the next SMTP host for the matched domain or email address.

  1. Go to Administration > Mail Settings > Message Delivery.
  2. Click Add.

    The Add Delivery Profile screen appears.

  3. Select the status of the delivery profile.
  4. Specify the recipient domain or email address. Type a wildcard (*) to manage email message delivery from a domain and any subdomains.
    • * (Include all domains)

    • example.com (Include only example.com)

    • *.example.com (Include example.com and any subdomains)

  5. Select either of the following from the Destination servers drop-down list:
    • Look up MX record: Specify the MX record name, and a port number when connecting through a non-default port.

    • Specify server: Specify the IP address or fully qualified domain name, port number, and priority to forward email messages.

      Note:
      • The lower the priority value, the higher the priority.

      • Optionally add multiple destination servers by clicking on Add server.

      • To disable a destination server, click on the check mark for the server behind the Priority field. Then the check mark becomes a dash mark. To enable the server again, click the dash mark.

  6. Click Save.

Importing Message Delivery Settings

Use this option if you have a properly formatted .xml file containing message delivery settings. Optionally, export existing settings from the management console, or download a sample XML from the Import Delivery Profiles screen and generate a file according to the exported file.

Specify settings for email message delivery to Deep Discovery Email Inspector downstream mail servers. Deep Discovery Email Inspector checks the recipient domains or email addresses, determines destination servers, and sends the message to the next SMTP host for the matched domain or email address.

  1. Go to Administration > Mail Settings > Message Delivery.
  2. Click Import.

    The Import Delivery Profiles screen appears.

  3. Click Browse to locate the file to import.
  4. Select one of the options:
    • Merge with existing profiles: Add the imported profiles into the current message delivery list.

    • Replace existing profiles: Overwrite all existing profiles with the profiles in the XML file.

  5. Click Continue.

    The profiles are added to the Message Delivery list.
