Note the following additional information about dictionaries:
Words in dictionaries are detected only if they match exactly with words as they appear in the dictionary. Words in dictionaries are not detected if they are variations, such as verb tenses. For example, "selling" is not a match with the word "sell."
Wildcards are not supported in dictionaries.
Up to 100 dictionaries are supported, and each dictionary can contain up to 10,000 words.
Words and phrases in dictionaries cannot be prioritized.
A dictionary can be used in multiple content filtering policies.
When you add words to a dictionary, keep in mind that some words can be considered both profane and legitimate, depending on the context. For example, the word "breast" might be inappropriate until it is coupled with the word "cancer."
Symantec Messaging Gateway does not search for dictionary matches in the HTML headers or tags of HTML messages or HTML attachments.
Words are not case sensitive.
Punctuation characters (such as a question mark (?)) cannot be used as the first character of a word.
