Including/Excluding Hostnames for BATV

If you selected Bounce messages as the Rule Type, It is also possible to use the Source Hostname message attribute to include hosts in BATV, or exclude hosts from BATV. To do this:

  1. In the Rule Type section, ensure that the Enable advanced policy options check box is selected.
  2. In the Message Attributes section, click Add to add a new message attribute.
  3. In the Add message attribute dialog box, select Source Hostname from the drop-down list, and add the hostname or domain that you want to include or exclude.
  4. Click Apply.

Examples of source hostname entries and some of the hostnames that they match are shown in the table below. The hostname is determined through a reverse DNS lookup of the first untrusted relay (FUR) IP and the Trusted Relays list.

example.com or *example.com example.com, mx1.example.com
*.example* mx1.example.com, mx2.sub.example.net, mx3.example.org
