Main Action

Configure the main action.

From the drop-down list in the Message actions section, select the action to be taken if this rule is triggered:
  • Continue Processing to continue processing the message.
  • Deliver Immediately to deliver the message immediately to the intended recipient(s) without triggering any subsequent policy rules.
  • Discard to immediately discard the message.

    You can also:

    • Select Attach original email to PDF if you want recipients to have the option of receiving an additional, unencrypted version of the email message. Doing so ensures that recipients can save an unencrypted copy of the email message once they have received and successfully opened an SPX email. Although they can save the PDF itself, it must be decrypted each time it is opened.
    • Opt to have the sender receive a registration confirmation.
    • Opt to always have the sender receive an encryption notification.
    • Select how a message will be handled if it cannot be delivered; on failure, you can choose to bounce the message to the Sender, the Administrator, or both the Sender and Administrator.
