Email Reputation

Email Reputation enables you to take advantage of a dynamic and constantly updated email source rating system to block spam and other unwanted messages. Email Reputation blocks messages from source IP addresses whose current reputation ratings are poor.

 
Customers with a valid Cloud Pre-Filter license may contact Trend Micro Technical Support to request for disabling this feature.
Disabling Email Reputation prevents the mentioned data from being sent to Trend Micro, but severely affects the ability of Cloud Pre-Filter to detect and block spam from known and emerging spam sources.
Data collected
  • Source IP addresses of incoming email messages
Console locationCloud Pre-Filter > Domain name > Filter
