Viewing Senders

Suspicious senders are senders of malicious or suspicious email messages. Find patterns in spoofed sender addresses and learn which social engineering techniques are employed. For example, the sender's email address appears as internal addresses, financial services (PayPal, banks), or other services (Gmail, Taobao, Amazon). Check the sender domain addresses and associated risk level to change policy settings or settings on the anti-spam gateway to block the suspicious sender email addresses at your mail gateway.
