The Advanced Email Security add-on automatically comes with a filter to encrypt messages. You can also create custom filters. For example, you could choose to encrypt emails that contain sensitive information using filters based on the message’s subject line or body content, and even for certain recipients or senders.

  1. Sign in to Advanced Email Security.
  2. Under Security Settings, select Email > Filter Policies.
  3. Select New Filter.
  4. Enter a Filter Name.
  5. Confirm that the direction is Inbound or Outbound, and select Continue.
  6. Or to edit an existing filter, find it in the list, and select Pencil Edit filter.
  7. Choose the Scope for your filter:
    • Company: This filter will apply to all mail for all users.
    • Group: This filter will only apply to mail for users in the chosen group.
    • User: This filter will only apply to mail for the specific user.
  8. For If, choose your filter’s criteria. The second menu will provide different options depending on your first selection:
  9. If you want, select Add another condition to create additional criteria for your filter.
  10. For Do, choose the action you want taken if the filter criteria are met:
    • Quarantine: This will block the message from being sent or received.
    • Allow: This will override other general filter settings that might block mail that meets this criteria.
    • Nothing: This will not take any action on the message.
    • (Outbound only) Encrypt: This will encrypt the message.
  11. Select the check box to Override Previous Destination if you want to ignore the destination another filter may have applied to the message.
  12. If you want, select Add another action to create additional actions on these messages. You have different options for the additional action:
  13. To the right, you can add a Description of the filter.
  14. Select Save.
