This Connect Application task is currently only available for UK customers with access to the Early Access URL.

This page describes how users of the Connect Application can add exceptions to our default anti-spoofing policies, for external services that send messages to internal users (e.g. Netsuite, SalesForce).

 

By default, we block inbound mail from external sources that spoof your domain names via our Anti-Spoofing policies. These policies are automatically created when you register a domain. If you use external services to send email to your internal users, add these services as exceptions to your Anti-Spoofing policy. If you have completed the Gateway | Modify Your MX Record task, you can check the rejections section in the Administration Console for items with "Anti-Spoofing".

If you add a hostname, ensure it’s the specific hostname the messages are sent from (e.g. "mail-webservice-01.domain.com").
