Specify a name for your policy, whether to track violations on the dashboard or in reports, and whether to disable decomposition of files in the list that you specify. You must also specify how you want Symantec Messaging Gateway to handle subsequent policy actions.
Conditions are based on the content of messages. Conditions can specify whether they apply to inbound messages, outbound messages, or both. They can indicate that a violation occurs either when all conditions are met, any condition is met, or a combination of conditions are met.
Conditions can apply to specific areas of the message. They can contain keywords and regular expressions. And you can use specific content filtering resources to create conditions (such as dictionaries, patterns, or records).
You must create separate policies for the messages that meet similar conditions but require separate actions for different policy groups. Similarly, inbound messages may be treated differently from the outbound messages that otherwise meet the same conditions for a policy group.
