Configuring safelist word options

In addition to using banned words to create a blocklist, you can also configure a safelist word section in your profile that tells your FortiMail unit to allow messages whose subject or body contains a particular word. So, for example, FortiMail could be configured to let every email containing the word “meeting” through without scanning.

  1. Go to Profile > AntiSpam > AntiSpam and edit the same profile from the previous step.
  2. Under Scan Configurations, enable Safelist word and click Configuration.
  3. In the Safe List Configuration window, click New.
  4. Enter the word/s you wish to bypass scanning in the Safelist Word field.
  5. Enable both Subject and Body to let FortiMail scan both the subject line and body of the email.
  6. Click OK.
