PureMessage Default Policy Overview

This section reviews the structure, syntax, and execution of each filter in the default policy.siv script. The policy script is executed for each message processed by PureMessage. It can test various characteristics of the message, and perform a variety of actions based on the results of those tests.

The default policy script is installed and enabled during PureMessage installation. The default policy varies according to your PureMessage license; for example, if you do not have a license for the PureMessage Virus component, virus-checking rules are not configured.
