Transfer Settings


Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-04-11

When you add new domains in Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), you have the option of using the settings for an existing domain as a template for the settings for the new domains. Additionally, you can use the Transfer Settings button to transfer the domain settings of one domain to all of the domains you selected in the active page of the domains list view. You can also use the Transfer Settings (all pages) link under the Tasks pane in order to transfer domain settings to all the domains that appear in the current view, regardless of which ones you have selected.

To transfer settings from one domain to other domains
  1. In the Domains tab on the Administration tab in the FOPE Administration Center, click the Transfer Settings (all pages) link under the Tasks pane, or select the specific domains to which you want settings transferred and then click the Transfer Settings button.

    If you have clicked the Transfer Settings (all pages) link, the settings will be applied to all domains for the current view and not only the domains that have been selected. You will override any existing domain settings for your target domains, so ensure that only domains that should be modified are in the current domain list view. To transfer settings to a subset of the current domain list view, exit from Transfer Settings (all pages) and click the Transfer Settings button to update only the selected domains.
  2. In the Transfer Settings dialog box, enter the Source domain whose settings you want to transfer to the other domains.

  3. You can choose to Select all of the following settings to be transferred, or you can choose specific settings:

    • Language and time zone

    • IP addresses (Mail Server Address and Outbound Mail Server IP Addresses)

    • Archive settings (requires Archive subscription)

    • Spam filtering (Enabled or Disabled)

    • Virus filtering notifications (Inbound Virus Recipient Notification, Virus Sender Notification, Inbound Virus Admin Notification, Outbound Virus Admin Notification)

    • Policy filtering (Enabled or Disabled, and Outbound E-mail Footer setting)

    • Policy rules (Enabled or Disabled)

    • Quarantine settings (includes Spam Quarantine, Policy Quarantine, and False Positive Submission Copy settings)

    • Spam action and notifications (Spam Action and Spam Quarantine Notification)

    • Deferral monitoring notifications (Deferral Notification)

    • Email encryption settings (requires Encryption subscription)

    The available settings that appear in the Transfer Settings dialog box are dependent upon the type of FOPE subscription you have (archive, encryption). Also, in a mixed mode scenario, for example when transferring Microsoft Office 365 domain settings with FOPE standalone domain settings, you can only transfer settings that are available with Office 365. The IP addresses and Virus filtering notifications settings cannot be transferred when you have subscribed to FOPE via Office 365.
  4. For the User List Settings field, select one of the following options:

    • Blank—No user list settings will be transferred. This is the default option.

    • Transfer User List Source/Disable DBEB—The user list source value of the source domain will be copied to the destination domains. The Directory-Based Edge Blocking (DBEB) setting of each destination domain will be set to Disabled.

    • Verify User List Source/Transfer DBEB—The system will verify that the user list source of the source domain and the destination domains are the same. The Directory-Based Edge Blocking (DBEB) value of the source domain will be copied to each destination domain.

    For more information about user list settings, see Configuring Directory-Based Edge Blocking.

  5. Click Transfer.

    If the source domain or one or more of the destination domains selected is a virtual domain, this operation will fail because you cannot transfer user list settings to or from a virtual domain.
