At times, you might want to identify a specific email address or an entire domain on the Internet that is sending you messages that you either want to completely allow or specifically deny the receipt of messages from that source location. The content filtering function of Edge Transport Services enables you to create a white list that always allows content to be received from a user or domain, or specifically allows for the denial of messages from a user or domain.

Do note that each user can also allow and deny message communications, so the choice to allow or deny content at the server level should take into consideration that the communication is organization-wide and that making a setting at the Edge Transport server level will have a positive impact on the appropriate receipt of content to all users in the organization.

An example of a deny filter on a user address or entire domain would include a situation where a user or domain is sending inappropriate content to several users in the organization. Rather than having each user make a configuration to block content from a user or domain, it can be set at the server level.

Conversely, if users in an organization want to receive all messages from a user or domain, those names can be added to a white list that will always allow messages to be received by users or the entire domain in the organization.

Configuring the Content Filter Agent to Allow (White List) Specific Senders, and Sending Domains

The Exchange Management Console allows you to exclude specific keywords, phrases, and recipients within your organization from content filtering checks; however, you can only exclude specific senders and sending domains from content filtering through the use of the Exchange Management Shell’s Set-ContentFilterConfig command, using the BypassedSenders and BypassedSenderDomains parameters, respectively.

The BypassedSenders parameter allows you to specify up to 100 external email addresses to exclude from content filtering, with each entry separated by a comma:

Set-ContentFilterConfig –BypassedSenders fred@companyabc.com, heather@company123.org


Note

The entry must be the full SMTP address; wildcard (*) use is not supported. For example, you cannot exclude john*@companyabc.com, or john@companyabc.*.


When excluding a specific email address (for example, user@companyabc.com), consider whether it is safe to exclude the domain using the BypassSenderDomainscompanyabc.com). Not only does this save you time and message retrieval because of false positives, it also consumes fewer entries in your list, leveraging both lists and the allowed maximum of 100 more efficiently. parameter instead (for example,

The BypassedSenderDomains parameter works similarly to the BypassedSenders parameter, allowing you to specify up to 100 external domains to exclude from content filtering, with each entry separated by a comma:

Set-ContentFilterConfig –BypassedSenderDomains *.companyabc.com, company123.org


Note

Wildcard use is supported to designate the exclusion of subdomains under the excluded domain—for example, *.companyabc.com.


Configuring the Content Filter’s SMTP Rejection Response

The SMTP Rejection Response is inserted into a SMTP nondelivery report (NDR) that is sent in reply to a rejected message. The default message is Message Rejected Due to Content Restriction. This message can be changed using the Set-ContentFilterConfig command with the -RejectionResponse parameter. The SMTP Rejection Response cannot exceed 240 characters and must be enclosed in quotation marks.

Note

The SMTP Rejection Response cannot exceed 240 characters and must be enclosed in quotation marks:

Set-ContentFilterConfig -RejectionResponse "Message rejected, an error has occurred. Contact your HelpDesk"
