Policies are listed in order of priority, with lower priority policies having higher precedence. To reorder policies, click the up up-arrow.jpg or down down-arrow.jpg arrow for the policy. You can also reorder a policy rule by editing its priority setting. See Adding or Editing Policy-Based Rate Controls.

SpamTitan Gateway is pre-loaded with two sample policies (default: disabled)

  • Outbound: Sender quotas

    This policy rate limits outbound connections by tracking the number of mails per sender email address during a 30-minute interval. If the threshold (default: 50) is exceeded, then the message is deferred and logged in history as 'Rate Controlled'.

  • Inbound: Recipient quotas

    This policy rate limits inbound connections by tracking the number of connections from each external IP address. If the threshold (default: 50) is exceeded, then the message is deferred and logged in history as 'Rate Controlled'.
