Edit Domain Preferences


Applies to: Forefront Online Protection for Exchange

Topic Last Modified: 2012-06-13

If you are a Microsoft Office 365 or Live@edu subscriber, the Catch-all domains, Outbound filtering, Spam filtering, and Virus filtering settings are not configurable in the Domain Settings pane in the FOPE Administration Center.

In Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE), you can specify the default language, time zone, catch-all domains setting, and Outbound filtering settings for each domain in your company by editing the domain’s preferences.

How to edit domain preferences
  1. On the Administration tab, click the Domains tab.

  2. In the Domains list, click the name of the domain that you want to modify. You can search for a specific domain name by using the search box.

  3. In the Domain Settings pane, in the Preferences section, click Edit.

  4. Update the domain's language and time zone settings. The language setting specifies the language used for Spam Notifications, if you have Spam Notifications enabled. For more information, see Configuring Language and Time Zone Preferences in FOPE.

  5. To have the Filtering Service automatically filter all subdomains for this domain, select the Catch-all domain check box (not available if DBEB is enabled). For more information, see Working With Catch-All Domains.

    If you leave the Catch-all domain check box cleared, then you must add all subdomains to the FOPE Administration Center to enable Hosted Filtering for those domains. If you have the Catch-all domain check box selected for a domain, and you have configured specific settings for a subdomain, only the configuration settings of the root domain will be applied to messages.
  6. To configure the Filtering Service to allow outbound filtering on messages from your domain, select the Outbound filtering check box. For more information, see Understanding Outbound E-Mail Filtering in FOPE.

  7. To receive a blind carbon copy (BCC) of all the outbound email filtered and routed through the Higher Risk Delivery Pool, enter an SMTP address in the BCC all suspicious outbound e-mail to the following e-mail address. The SMTP address must belong to a domain configured within your company. For more information, see Understanding the BCC Option for Outbound Suspicious E-mail.

    In order to set BCC all suspicious outbound e-mails for the following e-mail address and copy suspicious messages to a specified address, the domain from which the outbound mail is sent must be added in the FOPE Administration Center and an outbound mail server IP address must be specified under the domain’s mail-delivery settings.
  8. To change the Default Outbound Service domain to the current domain, check Use this domain settings as the default settings for outbound e-mail. For more information, see Configuring the Default Outbound Service Domain.

  9. Click Save.
