  • Untangle Tip of the Day! (I don't have an internal mail server)

    Many of our customer do not have their own internal mail server. If you don't have a mail server and still would like to use the SPAM & Phishing Blocker, please read on...

    Since you do not have an internal mail server like "Exchange", you will need to have a POP account. There are many free email services like Gmail from Google. After creating an account with Gmail, you will need to enable "POP"

    ***Information provided by GMAIL***
    You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports POP, like Microsoft Outlook or Netscape Mail.

    To enable POP in your Gmail account:

    Log in to your Gmail account.
    Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
    Click Forwarding and POP in the orange Mail Settings box.



    Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
    Choose the action you'd like your Gmail messages to take after they are accessed with POP.
    Configure your POP client* and click Save Changes.
    to be understood, you must first understand. :)

      Configuring the Untangle SPAM & Phishing Blocker to scan your POP Email.

      After you have installed the SPAM & Phishing Blocker module into your Virtual Rack, you will need to click on the show settings, then POP tab.



      Here you will be able to change the scan strength and the action if the SPAM is detected.

      ***Please note, since you are using POP or IMAP, it will mark the email with [SPAM] and you will need to create a rule on your email client to filter those emails with the [SPAM] marking.***
