What´s new

New insights into your organization's security
Recipient addresses can now be assigned to groups (using Active Directory or a plain text file) so that security statistics can be analyzed within organizational units or the company as a whole.

Reduced scanning time
MailGate can now verify recipient addresses against the Active Directory database so that only legitimate email addresses are processed.

More ways to stay informed
Administrators can now configure the system to send SNMP traps on security-related alerts.

Convenient quarantine management
Easily list, view, count, delete, reprocess or deliver quarantined emails.

Protection from harmful encrypted emails
Unscannable encrypted emails can now be individually handled by the administrator.

More uptime thanks to queue size control
Limits on the amount of queued mail can be set so that the SMTP process accepts or refuses connections according to predefined maximums.

Simplified installation and maintenance
MailGate is now also available as an RPM package.

A future-proof investment
MailGate stays on the cutting edge with full support of the IPv6 internet protocol.
