Before configuring Mail Sender Authentication in the message processing rule, make sure that the corresponding Mail Sender Authentication is enabled in general protection settings.

To configure Mail Sender Authentication in the message processing rule:

  1. In the application web interface window, select the Rules section.
  2. In the rule table, select the rule for which you want to configure Mail Sender Authentication.

    This opens the View rule window.

  3. Click Edit.

    Rule settings become editable.

  4. In the left pane, select the Mail Sender Authentication section.
  5. Use the toggle switch to the right of the section title to enable or disable Mail Sender Authentication for messages that match rule criteria.

    By default, Mail Sender Authentication is disabled.

  6. If at the previous step you have enabled Mail Sender Authentication, configure general settings for all authentication types:
    • Turn on the Consider temporary errors (TempError) as an authentication violation toggle switch if you want KSMG to treat a TempError temporary error as a Mail Sender Authentication violation.
    • Turn on the Consider permanent errors (PermError) as an authentication violation toggle switch if you want KSMG to treat a PermError permanent error as a Mail Sender Authentication violation.
  7. Configure the following scan types:
    • DMARC authentication.
    • SPF authentication.
    • DKIM authentication.
  8. Click Save.

Mail Sender Authentication is configured. The specified settings are applied to messages that match the rule criteria.

To make sure that the configured settings are applied by KSMG, enable Mail Sender Authentication for the rule and enable the configured rule.
