Newsletter redirection issue

edited March 2019 in Firebox - Proxies

Dear all,

We receive several newsletters via email that we want our users to have access to but they direct us first to a link that meets the "web and email marketing category" that we block. For example:

Newsletter from financials time:

email sent from info@stories-features.ft.com

If we click on the "to view online click here" button it directs to:


that is not permitted as it meets the "web and email marketing category"

but IF it was permitted it would redirect you to:


that is normally permitted

Any idea how we could bypass such scenarios?



  • Options

    You can add Allow exceptions to WebBlocker.
    Not sure of adding one for track-ft.sparkpostelite.com/* would be acceptable to your site or not.

    Thx Bruce for your answer. The issue is that this time was sparkpostelite.com but they may use another domain next time. How this could match all possible changes?

  • Options

    No idea without more examples.
    Perhaps track-ft..com/ would work.

    You have to allow the initial web access in order for the redirect to happen from the destinaion web server.
