Configuring webmail filtering

You can configure an email filter to detect and log emails sent via Gmail and Hotmail. These interfaces do not use standard email protocols (SMTP, POP3, or IMAP) and instead use HTTPS. However, you can still configure the email filter to detect emails that pass through the FortiGate.

Note

The FortiGate only detects and logs the emails, it does not discard or tag them.

To configure webmail filtering in the CLI:
config emailfilter profile
    edit "myWebMailDetector"
        set spam-filtering enable
        config msn-hotmail
            set log enable
        end
        config gmail
            set log enable
        end
    next
end
