Similar to Microsoft Exchange, some NoSpamProxy features can only be enabled through a PowerShell cmdlet. Specifying an “SPF-authenticated corporate email server” is one such feature. Entries of this kind facilitate the maintenance of NoSpamProxy enormously. “Corporate email servers” define the servers of a company that are allowed to use owned domains in email sender addresses. By default, IP addresses, subnets, host names, TLS-authenticated hosts, and Office 365 tenants can be specified.
In the case of the so-called Bundeshack, attackers, most likely from Russia, recently carried out a cyber attack on the German Federal Foreign Office. The perpetrators captured small amounts of data and only a single-digit number of documents. As far as is currently known, a total of 17 computers were affected by the malware attack.

The Digitale Strategie 2025 (Digital Strategy 2025) released by the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) supports small and medium-sized businesses in improving data security. Tool-supported email encryption as an extension of conventional email servers is particularly mentioned as one of the required measures. In this regard, the Kompass für IT-Verschlüsselung (IT encryption compass) emphasizes high usability of future-proof, gateway-based solutions.

As of January 1,2018, many energy suppliers have converted the solutions they use for EDI message exchange to the encrypted communication required by the EDI@Energy Directive. Afterwards a significant proportion of incoming mails could not be decrypted by NoSpamProxy and was either rejected or not delivered.
Electronic greeting cards are becoming increasingly popular and, above all, on public holidays. The e-cards are cheap and the shipping is compared to analog Christmas cards with little effort. However, digital greeting cards are often used by attackers to transmit spam and malware. The criminals are often successful with bad attachments or links.
