This article provides administrators instructions on how to edit and manage Policy Chains to establish Mail Policy in PGP Universal Server.
|Note: This answer pertains to PGP Universal Server 2.5.0 - 2.12.0.|
Managing Policy Chains
Use these procedures to add, delete, and edit policy chains.
|Caution: It is possible to export mail policy as an XML file, edit chains and rules directly in XML, and then import the edited file back into the PGP Universal Server. However, there is a higher risk of error using this method. You may want to edit mail policy directly in XML if you have a large number of changes to make at once, for example if you are migrating PGP Universal Server 2.0.6 proxy settings from multiple upgraded clustered Secondaries. Contact PGP Support (www.pgp.com/support) for help if you intend to edit mail policy in XML.|
To Edit the Settings for a Policy Chain:
To Create a New Policy Chain:
Deleting Policy Chains:
|Caution: The Default and Default: Legacy Clients policies cannot be deleted, but you can delete or edit the rules within. The Default chains provide a necessary starting point in the mail policy for all message processing. If you delete or change the rules in the Default chains, it can make your mail policy invalid and prevent your messages from being processed.|
Adding Rules to Policy Chains:
Deleting Rules from Policy Chains:
Enabling and Disabling Rules:
|Caution If you disable a rule in the policy chain, it could cause email to be processed incorrectly. Depending on how you have designed your policy chain, disabling rules may cause email to be sent unintentionally unencrypted, or to fall through the policy chain and not be sent at all.|
An enabled rule is a rule that is turned on and being used to process email on the policy chain. A disabled rule is not deleted, but is not currently in use to process email through the policy chain.
