How to determine if message is of internal or external origin

In this article we look at the FromAddressTester predicate and demonstrate how it can be used to perform tests on a message to determine if its origin is from within the organisation or if it was sent by an external party.

How to prevent certain attachments being delivered to mobile devices

In this article we look at the AttachmentByNameRemover processor and demonstrate how it can be used to remove attachments from a message based on the extension of the attachment.

How to limit message processing by mobile device type

In this article we look at the EndPointMachineTypeTester predicate and demonstrate how it can be used to limit message processing (filtering) based on the type of mobile device.

In a practical sense, this allows organisations to have different rules if the end user's device is say an iPhone rather than a Windows Mobile device.

How to limit message processing by message class (subtype)

In this article we look at the MessageClassTester predicate and demonstrate how it can be used to restrict processing actions to particular types of messages.

How to prevent PROTECTED and above security classified messages from being sent to a mobile device

In this article we look at the SubjectTester predicate and demonstrate how it can be used along with the MessageReplacer processor to block highly sensitive messages from being synchronised to a mobile device.

This example uses security classification terms (protective markings) in the subject line as used by Australian Government entities. Protective marking schemes of other countries or companies can be readily used by simple modification of this example.

Setting up a test network for evaluating janusGATE Mobile with iPhone

This guide shows administrators how to prepare a test environment to evaluate janusGATE Mobile with an iPhone. The phone connects to the test network using Wi-Fi (WLAN), so there is need for connectivity to a telco network.

The outcome of this guide is that evaluators will be able to send messages to a test user's mailbox, and then use the test user's mobile device to synchronise messages to the device. Evaluators will be able to modify janusGATE Mobile configuration to see the impact on messages delivered to the device.

The guide is targeted at administrators with solid experience is setting up Exchange Server in a test environment. Experience with setting up a Wi-Fi access point is also recommended.

Depending on the availability of resources already existing in your test environment, this guide will take between 2 and 8 hours to complete.
