IMAP ONLINE and policy

Hello,
in the company we have always used e-mail clients such as outllok or Thunderbird, with the relative IMAP and POP3 policies to check incoming and outgoing mail, now that we would like to go online how can I check with the same policies that seem to not work?

    Hi @Cristiano

    With regards to the client connections. there are two basic ways this can go:

    -Webmail: You can use the HTTP/HTTPS proxies (HTTPS will need content inspection turned on.) This can provide antivirus scanning, but won't help with spam blocking.

    -Connecting to Cloud/online server via a client using IMAP/POP3: You can use the IMAP proxy, just as you would have done before.

    For the server, you can still use the firebox to scan inbound SMTP mail, you'll just need to set the firebox up to forward it to the server in the cloud, like here:

    (Configure the Firebox SMTP proxy to work with Office 365 and other cloud-based email services)

  • Thanks,
    in my case not an internal mail server, I would just like to scan the mail visible from webmail.

    Hi @Cristiano
    in order to scan webmail, you'll need to use the HTTP and HTTPS proxies. You'll only be able to do Gateway AV scanning, IPS scanning here. Spamblocker won't work via the HTTP/HTTPS proxies.

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    I have not explained myself well, I would just like to scan mail with antispam / APT and AV via webmail in the office 365 platform, but I don't have an internal mail server because until now we have used mail clients

  • Web mail does not use SMTP, thus you can not use SMTP options such as spamBlocker. You need an internal mail server to use the SMTP proxy.

    You can implement AV on an HTTP proxy action, and if you use Inspect on a HTTPS proxy action for your web mail access, you can use AV.

  • Thanks Bruce
