Domain Content Filter & Aliases
Question asked by Brad Hall - 10/28/2014 at 2:49 PM
I have a question regarding Aliases & Content Filtering using SM 12.x. Professional
I create an Alias (ex: alias1@mycompany.com) that forwards to a gmail account (email1@gmail.com).
I then create a Domain Content Filter with a rule that says "Anything sent to alias1@mycompany.com with an attachment over 1MB should be REROUTEd to another email address (bigfile@mycompany.com)."
When I test the above scenario, I would expect that any email sent to alias1@mycompany.com with a 1.2 MB file would only go to 'bigfile@mycompany.com'. 
What actually happens is that I get an email at both endpoints (email1@gmail.com & bigfile@mycompany.com).
My question:
Is there anyway of using Content Filtering to essentially override what is in the Smartermail alias functionality?
Thanks for the help in advance

No, I don't think you can change the order of operations when using an alias.  If you converted the alias to a user you could probably create content filters that would accomplish what you desire.

Brad, content filtering does not currently work on aliases in the fashion you stated.  As Joe stated, change the alias to a user account and add content filters to that account to accomplish the forwarding depending on the message size.
