Note: Email Protection features depends on your plan. If your account interface and settings differ from the ones described below, upgrade from Email Protection Lite to Email Protection.

URL Protection service analyzes links in the emails and checks these links for possible threats.

It prevents users from visiting phishing pages or pages that contain malware.

To enable the service, navigate to CONTROL PANEL > Services > Email Protection > Inbound Policy > Default Policy > URL Protection

Enable URL Protection

Once the user clicks on the link, service analyzes it and, if the link is considered as dangerous, the user receives a warning that visiting this website may harm the computer, and dangerous web page won't be opened.

URL Protection warning

You can add domains, URLs and IP addresses that you want to exclude from URL Protection check to URL safe list:

URL safe list

Note: If the message contains more than 1000 URLs, including mailto: addresses, it gets automatically routed to Admin Quarantine regardless of account settings. The email tracking will show the following error code: URL Rewrite Limit. To resolve this issue, you may add the sender's domain and your own domain to the URL safe list.

Important: when disabling URL Protection, URL safe list is wiped.
