This article explains how wildcarding email domains works in PureMessage for UNIX.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
PureMessage for Unix
For global whitelisted senders/blacklisted senders list the default match type is email glob. Thus to match by domain, you would enter in either (assuming you want to just match the top level domain):
If you were to use:
*@domain.com it would match
email@example.com but it will not match
More information about the email glob match type is below.
- Glob style email address matching. The wildcards are the same as for
domain, but '@' is prevented from matching on '*' and '?'. Also, if the list entry ends with '@' then the match is no longer anchored at the end.
- Some examples:
- Matches all addresses ending with a domain name of 'example.com' such as 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'email@example.com'.
- Matches all addresses with 'example.com' as the exact domain part.
- Matches all addresses starting with the string 'dev-'.
- Matches all addresses with 'foo' as the local part and a two level domain name with 'perl' as the first level, like 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and 'email@example.com'.
- Matches all addresses with 'foo' as the local part and at least a two level domain name with 'perl' as the first level, like 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and 'email@example.com'.
