HOW TO: Setup and Use Dictionaries in PGP Universal Server
Dictionaries are lists of terms to be matched. Dictionaries work with mail policy to allow you to define content lists that can trigger rules or fulfill the conditions of a rule to trigger actions. For example, Dictionaries can contain addresses you want excluded from processing, key words like confidential, or user names for internal users whose messages need special handling.
A policy rule can have a dictionary associated with it as a condition. If a message meets the condition, the PGP Universal Server processes the message according the rule's action.
For example, one of the default Outbound rules is called Excluded Signed. The condition for that rule is If any of the following are true: Recipient address is in dictionary Excluded Addresses: Sign. This means the rule applies to any message in which the recipient address matches a term in the dictionary. If that condition is met, the action for the rule is triggered. The action is to sign and send the message with no further processing.
Dictionaries are also used to match external users to the correct external user policy. Create a dictionary containing a list of external user names, then create an external user policy with a membership made up of users with names in that dictionary.
