CI-Mail-Policy is an email flow manager designed especially for Microsoft Exchange server. It’s powerful and flexible rule-based framework lets you manage, monitor an enforce a variety of email policies. They can be applied to all incoming and outgoing emails in your organization without having to visit a single PC.
How does CI-Mail-Policy work?
The basic concept of CI-Mail-Policy's rules and actions is similar to Microsoft Exchange's "Mail Flow Rules" (also know as Transport Rules) – just without the hassle of configuration and a lot more versatile. Like the transport service CI-Mail-Policy runs as a service on the Exchange Server. When emails pass the Exchange, CI-Mail-Policy checks and enforces the policies you've created on them. As it all takes place while emails are in transit - being sent from a to b - neither sender nor recipient can prevent actions from being applied.
