CLI Reference

mailsetting storage central-quarantine

Use this command to configure centralized storage of quarantined email. This command is only available on high-end models.

To reduce the storage resources required on lower-end FortiMail units, you can configure them to store quarantined email on a high-end FortiMail unit that you have configured to act as a centralized quarantine server.

Syntax

config mailsetting storage central-quarantine

set remote-storage-type {disable | from-client | to-server-over-ssl | to-server-plain | unknown}

set client-ip <client_ipv4>

set server-host <server_ipv4>

set server-name <name_str>

end

Variable

Description

Default

remote-storage-type {disable | from-client | to-server-over-ssl | to-server-plain | unknown}

Enter one of the following centralized quarantine types:

  • disable: Centralized quarantine storage is disabled. The FortiMail unit stores its quarantines locally, on its own hard disks.
  • from-client: Select this option to allow the FortiMail unit to act as a central quarantine server and receive quarantined messages from other client FortiMail units. Also configure client-ip <client_ipv4> of the FortiMail clients. Note this feature is only available on the high-end FortiMail models (FortiMail 1000D and above).
  • to-server-over-ssl: Same as to-server-plain, except the connection uses SSL.
  • to-server-plain: Select this option to allow the FortiMail unit to act as a central quarantine client and send quarantined messages to the remote server in plain text. Also configure server-name <name_str> and server-host <server_ipv4> of the remote server. All FortiMail units can act as clients.
  • unknown: Centralized quarantine storage is unknown.

disable
