Proofpoint Essentials: IP address on the Sorbs Blacklist 01.18.2017
Posted by Sue Gildea on 18 January 2017 05:58 PM

Please be advised that IP Address 67.231.154.164 is on the Sorbs Blacklist.

If a server or firewall is utilizing a RBL (Roaming Block List) service, it will in turn do a look up from Sorbes and will block the message. 

In order to work around this, you will need to turn the service off or add the IP address to the allow list of the RBL service they are using.

Excel Micro made Proofpoint aware of this IP address issue and they are in the process of getting it delisted from the Sorbes list.

We will continue to update as they become available. Thank you.

Proofpoint Essentials: Reminder Verify your domain
Posted by Carlos R on 16 December 2016 01:55 AM

Proofpoint Essentials: Verify your domain

Reminder: Effective Friday, August 19th, new domains being enabled for email relay purposes will require a simple step to verify domain ownership. This industry standard verification technique is part of Proofpoint’s ongoing efforts to improve the security posture for our customers.

DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MX RECORDS UNTIL VERIFICATION PROCESS HAS COMPLETED

What is Domain Verification?

Domain verification is used to verify the ownership of a domain that is intended for relaying email. Proofpoint Essentials provides two ways to verify ownership:

  • Add a DNS record (TXT) to the domain’s configuration
  • Add a custom a META tag to the homepage associated to the domain

Will all domains need to be verified?

Only new relay domains added after domain verification is enabled, or existing management domains switched to relay domains, will need to be verified. Existing relay domains will not need to be verified.

Will management domains need to be verified?

No, management domains do not need to be verified, as they are not used for relaying email. If a existing management domain is changed to a relay domain, it will need to be verified.

How often do domains need to be verified?

New relay domains only need to be verified when they are enabled for relay. Once they have been verified, no further verification will be required in the future.

How do I verify domain ownership?

There are two ways that domain ownership can be verified. 

  1. You can add a DNS record to the domain's configuration
  2. You can add a custom META tag to the homepage associated to the domain.

Only one verification technique is required.

 

Verify domain by adding a DNS (TXT) record to your domain’s configuration

REMINDER: DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MX RECORDS UNTIL VERIFICATION PROCESS HAS COMPLETED

  7. Enter the delivery destination (Optional at this time but required before it can be enabled)
  8. Enter SMTP failover location (Optional)

  10. Copy the value displayed on the screen (i.e., ppe-7c123438b96cd00aa17e)
  11. Click on Verify Later

Step 2: Add the DNS record to your domain

  1. Open a new tab or browser window
  2. Login to your DNS provider's website
  3. Go to your provider's domain management window - this may be called DNS Settings, Control Panel, Advanced Settings, etc.
  4. Add a new entry to your DNS
    • Type = TXT
    • Host = @
    • Value/Answer/Definition = Paste value from clipboard
    • TTL = 3600 seconds / 1 hour
  5. Ensure that you save the change
