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.
The term of SSL certificates can be ordered individually as needed from our partners D-Trust, SwissSign and GlobalSign. One- two- or three-year certificates had been possible so far. The Certification Authority Browser Forum now has announced that from March 1st 2018, certificates can only have a maximum term of 825 days or rather 27 months. As of today, you should avoid orders with a three-year term. D-Trust has already responded and does not offer three-year certificates anymore. Those that are still in operation are not going to lose their validity.

Dear NoSpamProxy users,
Our TrustCenter partner GlobalSign will carry out important updates to the database on 16 December 2017. The following systems are affected during this period:
UTC: 3:00 – 9:00 am, 16 Dec
CET: 4.00 – 10.00 am, 16 Dec
All certificate management functions (e. g. ordering and renewing) via the GlobalSign Certificate Center (GCC) or APIs will not be available. As a result, no certificates will be issued during this period!
