Hardware

  • Communication via the SMTP protocol for inbound and outbound messages is allowed.
  • Moreover, NoSpamProxy Encryption also supports the receipt of messages via the POP3 protocol.
  • An own full-featured email server is available.
  • 4GB RAM main storage
  • 2 CPU cores (virtualised or physical)
  • The required hard drive space depends on the number of received emails and the deployed functions (NoSpamProxy Protection, NoSpamProxy Encryption, NoSpamProxy Large Files etc.) of NoSpamProxy. For support during the organisation, please contact our support team.
  • Port redirection or relay system is available. Instead of your former email server, NoSpamProxy accepts emails on port 25. If the email server and NoSpamProxy are installed on the same system, the former port of the email server must be redirected.

System and infrastructure

For the Gateway Role and the Intranet Role, you need an SQL server. You can either install the free SQL Server 2012 Express Edition during the installation or use an already existing SQL Server. NoSpamProxy supports SQL Server starting from version 2008 in Express, Standard or Enterprise Edition.

All components and roles and services of NoSpamProxy require the .NET Framework 4.7.2. It can be installed subsequently if it is selected during the installation of NoSpamProxy. The installation program provides you with a link to the required .NET-Framework setup.

If NoSpamProxy and Microsoft Exchange are installed on the same server, make sure that Exchange supports the respective version of the .NET Framework before installing or upgrading. The Exchange Server Supportability Matrix offers an overview of supported versions.

We recommend the deployment of Windows Server in the latest version. The minimum requirements are listed in the following:

NoSpamProxy Protection

Windows Server 2008 R2

NoSpamProxy Encryption

Windows Server 2008 R2

NoSpamProxy Large Files

Windows Server 2008 R2

Please ensure that the following requirements are met for the installation of the Gateway Role:

  • Working DNS resolution is available. DNS resolution is used by NoSpamProxy Protection for the realtime blacklists and spam URL blocklists. NoSpamProxy Encryption requires a DNS resolution for the verification of certificates (access to ‘Certificate Revocation Lists’ and ‘OCSP’).
  • HTTP and HTTPS as well as LDAP access to the Internet is possible. NoSpamProxy Protection requires these protocols for one of the realtime blocklists and the ‘Cyren AntiSpam’ filter. NoSpamProxy Encryption uses HTTP and HTTPS as well as LDAP for the verification of certificates (access to ‘Certificate Revocation Lists’ and ‘OCSP’).
  • If you use a firewall, the ports designated for NoSpamProxy must be opened (usually, this is port 25).
  • TCP connection via port 6060 and HTTPS connection via port 6061 from the client to the Gateway Role. These ports are required for initial connection establishment between Gateway Roles and the Intranet Role. After all Gateway Roles have been connected, the communication to them ensues via the Intranet Role only.
  • Optional: any file-based OnAccess virus scanner is installed.

Note: If you activate ports, please activate them on the Windows firewall as well as on your Perimeter firewall.

Please ensure that the following requirements are met for the installation of the Intranet Role:

  • TCP connection via port 6060 and HTTPS connection via port 6061 from the client to the Intranet
    Role is possible.
  • TCP connection via port 6060 and HTTPS connection via port 6061 from the Intranet Role to the
    Gateway Role is possible.
  • Optional: TCP connection to the domain controller via LDAP or Global Catalog is available.
  • Optional: TCP connection to the Web Portal via HTTPS is available.

Please ensure that the following requirements are met for the installation of the management console:

  • TCP connection via port 6060 and HTTPS connection via port 6061 from the client to the Intranet Role
  • Microsoft Report Viewer 2010. The package can be installed subsequently if selected during the installation of NoSpamProxy. The installation program provides you with the link to the required setup.

Outlook Add-In

For the installation of the Outlook add-in, you need the components listed below. These components are provided via the setup file. If you provide users with the Add-In via software distribution, please ensure that these components are installed as well.

  • Outlook 2010 with Service Pack 2
  • Visual Studio Tools for Office 2010 Runtime (VSTO) or later
  • .NET Framework 4.7.2.

Note: Make sure that all third-party applications you use that connect to NoSpamProxy are covered by the respective vendor support. If this is not the case, the NoSpamProxy support team cannot provide support.

Note: If NoSpamProxy and Microsoft Exchange are installed on the same server, make sure that Exchange supports the respective version of the .NET Framework before installing or upgrading. The Exchange Server Supportability Matrix offers an overview of supported versions.

Note: For further details on the installation of the Add-In, please refer to the manual Outlook Add-In installation and group policies (German). The installation via MSI file for software distribution is discussed there.
