About message censor

Create and manage filtering policies by assigning actions to matched content, filters for matching types of message content, time periods for limiting the time of day during which filtering policies are enforced and custom content categories for inclusion in filters. However, if you are a new customer you might not be able to use this function, see our knowledge base article, Message Censor Redundancy.

You can create and deploy policies that accept, modify, block, or log content in messages.

To configure a message censor policy, you need to:

  • Configure and deploy a policy with a filter, an action, a time period and level of severity.
  • Configure filters that classify messages by their textual content.
  • Configure time periods during which policies are applied.
  • Define custom categories to cater for situations not covered by the default Smoothwall phrase lists.
