Policy List

Deep Discovery Email Inspector evaluates email messages against the rules defined in policies. You can enforce specific policies on individual or a group of senders or recipients. Deep Discovery Email Inspector matches the policies based on the sender and recipient information in messages and the message directions. When more than one policy is matched for a message, Deep Discovery Email Inspector takes the action of the matched policy rule with the highest priority.
