Filters

The “Filters” module is located in the “Mail” menu. This module is designed to configure automatic rules for incoming and outgoing emails. You can use filters to delete, copy, and replace recipients in an email. When you open the filters module, you will see the filters created in the ICS CUBE, as well as the search bar and function buttons (add, delete, disable, edit) that are activated when you select an object.

Important! If the conditions of two filters apply to an email, then the actions specified in both filters will be performed. In this case, not more than one copy of the email will be sent to one mailbox, and the “Delete” action will be performed at the end and the original email will be deleted.

Mail filter.

To create a mail filter, click “Add” - “Mail filter” in the main window. A new dialog box will open, where you will be asked to enter the name of the filter; which emails to apply this filter to; the filter trigger condition; and the action applicable to the mail message when the condition is triggered.

Mail filter can be applied:

  • to messages, matching all the conditions - the mail filter will work if all the parameters from the “Conditions” block are met;
  • to messages, matching any of the conditions - the mail filter will work if at least one of the parameters from the “Conditions” block is satisfied;
  • to all messages - the mail filter will apply the actions specified in the “Actions” block to all emails.

The “Conditions” section allows you to set any number of conditions. To create a condition, click the “Add” button and select the condition ID from the drop-down list (“Subject”, “Sender”, “Recipient”, “Size(KB)”). A new window will open where you will be asked to choose how to check whether the condition matches (“subject contains”, “subject does not contain”, “subject coincides with”, “subject does not coincides with”, “begins with”, “ends with”) and the Value.

The “Actions” block allows you to set any number of actions to be applied to the message when the “Conditions” block is triggered. To create an action, you need to click the “Add” button and select the action itself in the drop-down list (“Move to”, “Send copy to”, “Delete”, “Change sender domain to”, “Change recipient domain to”), a new window will open in which you will be prompted to enter a value for the selected action, which can be selected from the drop-down list or entered manually (the exception is the “Delete” action).

Mailing list.

The “Mailing list” object is used to manage a filter that sends copies of emails to the specified list of addresses, provided that the destination address matches.

To create a mailing list, click “Add” in the main window - “Mailing list”. A new dialog box will open, where you will be asked to specify the name of the mailing list; specify the destination address (the mailbox to which the original email will be sent, but it should not be opened in the ICS CUBE, since it is a link); specify the mailboxes to send the original email to in the address table; and, if necessary, set the “Allow only from mailer domain” flag (i.e., the mailing will only occur if the sender of the original email has the same domain as the link specified in the “Destination address” field).

To import a list of mailing addresses to a mailing list, use a file where each new address starts with a new line.
