Adding inbound and outbound connections
Getting Started Guide | Forcepoint Email Security Cloud
Your policy must have at least one default inbound connection and one outbound connection in order to be active on the system.
The Default Inbound Routes section defines where Forcepoint Email Security Cloud sends email that is not matched by an inbound routing rule after processing messages received from the Internet - these are the connections to your email servers.
The Outbound box specifies from which connections Forcepoint Email Security Cloud is prepared to accept email for your domains (for onward delivery to the Internet).
Select the Connections tab on the policy to add, view, or change connections for the policy.
1.
Click Add on the Connections tab to add an IP address or email server for inbound or outbound connections. Choose the button in the Default Inbound Routes or Outbound box, depending on the direction you are configuring.
2.
In the Server field, enter a fully qualified host name or an IP address. If you enter an IP address you are asked to give this connection a name. The name you give your IP address connection is not important and can just be "inbound" and "outbound" or whatever you feel is appropriate.
If you enter an invalid IP address such as one from the reserved, private range, an error results.
3.
For inbound mail, enter a Preference value to specify the order in which connections should be used. (Connections with preference value 1 are used before all other connections.) The preference value is ignored for outbound email.
4.
If you wish to use email encryption, enter a Security value: Unenforced, Encrypt, Encrypt+CN, Verify, or Verify+CN. See Encryption tab in Forcepoint Email Security Cloud Help for further information.
5.
Select an Encryption Strength: 128 or 256.
6.
Click Submit.
