A new update fixing some bugs has been released. We recommend all customers to apply this update. It can be found in our download section.
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.
The issue preventing NoSpamProxy working correctly has been fixed in latest .NET 4.6 update.
The latest version of our gateway solution NoSpamProxy is now available at „Download NoSpamProxy“. Therewith, you can meet the requirements of your clients insofar as email security in a Microsoft environment even better and easier.
On 13th June Version 11 has been released to the public. The new Disclaimer option is the key feature of this version. For the past IT departments had to provide some solutions installed directly on the Mailserver to provide a company wide footer or text signature in mails. This is no longer an issue. With NoSpamProxy you can do this on the central Gateway without the need to add something to your Mailserver.
Of course there has been a lot of improvements to existing features, too. The direct update is supported from 10.x on and will keep all your settings.
Many customers ask how to block certain attachments, especially potentially harmful ones. Here is how it works.
First of all you have to define a ruleset which you want to use. We call it a content filter policy. Select Presettings (1) and Add (2) to create a new one. Give your policy a good name for what it will do. Now you have to define the attachment types you want to give a special treatment. Click Add (3) and create a new definition. Please be aware your definitions are evaluated from top to bottom and first matching entry will be applied. So if you allow invoice_0815-GmbH_*.zip this should be on top of rejecting *.zip-entry.
According to this post, there is a major bug in .NET 4.6 which could have a serious impact on every NoSpamProxy installation. Please do not update to .NET 4.6.

An article at Microsoft is worth mentioning in this context that no other SMTP hosts are allowed between an on-premises Exchange CAS or Exchange Edge Transport Server and Exchange Online Protection (EOP). Since NoSpamProxy always works before the complete Exchange infrastructure, this hint can be ignored.
