SpamExperts Software Updates – 2nd Quarter 2018

Top Software Updates for Q2 2016

In this blog post, we highlight the most important updates from Q2 2018. For a comprehensive list of new features and improvements, please visit the changelog in our knowledgebase.

Customise Email Scout Report Templates (preview)

An Email Scout Report is, essentially, the results of a log search, sent either immediately, at a scheduled time, or on a regular basis. As part of the process, the results are converted to a format that is suitable for an email message, via a template. There are currently two templates that are installed by default – one ‘column’ based template, only suited for a small number of results, and one ‘row’ based template that’s more suitable for large numbers of results.

Starting with this update, admins are able to both customize the existing templates and also create new templates from scratch, via the ‘Email Scout Reports Templates’ page found in the ‘Others’ section of the navigation. If you’re creating a new template, it’s recommended to start by creating a copy of an existing template. Alternatively, you can start from a completely blank template. Depending on your needs, you may want to create templates that are suited to a narrower type of report (e.g. specifically for quarantined messages or for reporting on the state of the delivery queue), or for reporting issues with outgoing users – or you may want to only adjust the way the reports look or the boilerplate text that’s included.

When a user creates an Email Scout Report, they are able to choose a template from the ones that are globally available, and also the ones that their (direct) admin has provided. Admins may copy reports from ‘parent’ admins if they wish them to be available to their own users.

Edit multiple mailboxes at once

You’re now able to manage the settings for multiple mailboxes at once. To do this, simply head to the ‘Mailboxes overview’ page, and go to the ‘Mailboxes’ tab. Find the mailboxes that you want to edit, select them, and then choose ‘Edit’ from the normal action menu. You’ll see the same ‘Edit’ dialog as if you were editing a single mailbox, but any changes you make will apply to all of the mailboxes that you have selected.

For example, if you have changed filtering to be disabled by default, and would like to enable filtering for 5 specific mailboxes, then rather than finding the first, editing it, finding the second, editing it, etc, you can just select all five, and edit them all in a single action.

‘Mailboxes overview’ moved out of preview

The ‘Mailboxes overview’ page will move out of preview as of this build. The page allows you to control if filtering is enabled/disabled for mailboxes by default, and to overrule the default setting per mailbox. This new page will eventually replace the ‘Local Recipients’, and ‘Email address aliases’ pages.

LDAP authentication custom BindDN formatter

When allowing email users to authenticate via LDAP, the BindDN can now be customized to allow for Active Directory setups using a different domain for the user logic.
