Short guide Proofpoint End User Digest

Proofpoint End User Digest is your personal environment of the Proofpoint filter. You will receive a daily email with your 'Proofpoint End User Digest'.

In this environment you can specify what to do with any email that Proofpoint thinks is unsafe. You can set your personal preferences by clicking on Manage My Account at the bottom of the email. How this works is explained below. Click on an image to display it larger.

Also learn more about the effects of rewritten URLs at URL rewriting and the block page message.

At the bottom of the digest mail you will find three options:

  • Request New End User Digest : Ask for a new Digest-mail
  • Request Safe/Blocked Senders List: Mail me the safe and blocked list
  • Manage My Account: Go to your personal Digest environment.


Manage My Account

Click on Manage My Account on the bottom right and you will enter your personal Digest environment. On the bottom left you have three categories: Lists, Profile and Quarantine.


Lists:

Safe Sender List: New (menu item) allows you to specify an email address (e.g. test@yahoo.com) or even an email domain (e.g. hotmail.com) that you trust to pass the Proofpoint filter.

Lists_SafeS_1_EN

Blocked senders List: Here you can use New to specify an e-mail address or domain that should be blocked so that you no longer receive e-mails from this sender (e.g. test@hotmail.com) or the domain (e.g. yahoo.com).

Lists_BliockS_1_EN


Profile:

In Settings: you can change your preference for whether or not you want newsletters delivered. The Radboud default is already set to deliver newsletters. Do you want to change this? Choose 'Newsletters quarantined'.

In Settings, you can also select the language for the Proofpoint End User Overview. Don't forget to save your changes by clicking the Save button.

    SPAM Quarantine


URL Rewriting

Links in an email are by default rewritten. They start with: https://urldefense.com/v3/

If you want to check a link to see if it is safe by looking at the URL, the rewrite has changed that: it points to https://urldefense.com/v3/(_xxx_). In the last part (_xxx_) you see the original link.


Sometimes you will see the rewritten link in the email message.
Proofpoint_herschreven link
This happens when you subscribe to a newsletter, for example. In this case a confirmation is asked to go to a site and activate the newsletter. Proofpoint rewrites the link so it can be opened securely. The original link remains intact but is preceded by https://urldefense.com/v3/__ . The link then looks like this:

https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://list.pitt.edu/mailman/confirm/rxfaculty/d957e8d9ebd560a1539f6cd33ca3fd9682884563__;!HJOPV4FYYWzcc1jazlU!vIjJPY

If you click this link it will launch in a safe environment and you can still activate your newsletter in this example.


Block Page message

If a link is considered dangerous you will receive a Block Page message.
