Adding domains
Getting Started Guide | Forcepoint Email Security Cloud
Each Forcepoint Email Security Cloud policy applies to a set of domains. To add domains to any policy (including the default policy), you must first set up a valid inbound connection on the Connections tab that will accept messages for the domain you plan to add. A valid inbound connection is one that accepts messages on port 25 for the domain. If it is behind the firewall, the firewall must allow email traffic from the IP address ranges listed on the Service IP addresses page. The connection is checked as part of the validation.
To add a domain or sub-domains to the policy:
1.
Click Add on the Domains tab.
2.
3.
4.
Click Submit.
At this stage Forcepoint Email Security Cloud checks for a valid inbound connection for this domain and displays the result on the Add Domain screen. If it cannot find or validate a connection, an error message appears.
Important 
The Add Domain screen also displays the following options for you to verify ownership of the domain you have entered. The ownership check initially displays as Failed, because it cannot succeed until you have done one of the following:
*
*
*
Once you have made one of the above changes, click Check Now.
Important 
If you return to the list of domains on the Domains tab before the required record has been added or successfully propagated, the details you entered appear in the domain list with the status Unchecked. Once you have created the required records, click the domain name to view the details, and then click Check Now again to retry the validation.
Important 
Do not configure domains until you are ready to verify ownership, because all domains are marked Rejected after 7 days if ownership verification has not been completed. You must then call Support to edit or re-enable the domain.
