A search term can be added to a Content Examination Definition to look for a specific word, or combination of words or characters within scanned mail. Multiple Search Terms can be added to the Word / Phrase Match List within the definition, used to search for word or phrase matches. If we detect a match in a message, the action specified in the definition is taken.
