Content Control

Content Control allows CMail Server to scan incoming and outgoing mail for the violations of the content database as specified by the Administrator. Restrictions can also be placed on the type of files that a user can receive as attachments. 

The configuration for Content Control can be found in this menu although it is enabled on a per-user basis from the Advanced User Preferences menu.

The Content Control menu is divided into two sections. The left section handles banned words or phrases and the second section handles banned attachment types.

 

Enabling Content Control
There are two ways to activate content control. The first is on a per-user basis and is set on the Advanced User Preferences of each user. The second method is to check the box labelled Scan all users Email which imposes content control on every user on the system.
