  • Hi,

    1. You can do this with policy rules. The following articles show you how to create policy rules:


    2. AFAIK there is no predefined dictionary for blocking java. You have to create it on your own.

    3. Check the following article how to import dictionaries into FOPE:

  • Hi,

    there are no predefined rules available to block specific spam. You have to configure it on your own. Microsoft can't do that because every customer needs custom rules. One wants to block .exe the other customer not, so this is impossible for Microsoft to handle.

    So if you start from scratch there are no filters that block messages on specific criterias.

  • Hi,

    Thanks again well i have export the defined dictionaries available in Mcafee SIG now i want to import it on FOPE but when i suppose to import .xml file it display an error that it support 900 words and 32 kb file and the .xml file which i have it is 414KB so, is there any way to break it or shrink it.

  • Hi,

    according the following note you can only import txt or csv files so you can't import your xml file.

    "The Dictionary feature supports .txt and .csv files only. The maximum permissible file size for dictionaries is 32 KB and each file can support 9,000 characters. Additionally, dictionary files only support Basic syntax. For more information about the supported syntax, see Basic Syntax in Understanding Policy Rule Syntax."

    You have to split your file into many smaller files with a maximum size of 32kb. Due to the xml structure of your file you can do it with a litte vbscript.
