You might choose to send emails from a valid email account on a corporate email server because you want to:
Send training invitations from a valid internal account so your users can confidently click on the training without thinking it is a phishing attack.
- Send out information security announcements and use Barracuda PhishLine to track which users interacted with your message.
- Simulate a phishing attack from a "compromised" internal account.
To set up a customer-owned mail server:
- Provide your Barracuda PhishLine representative with the following information:
For sending emails:
- SMTP Host – The DNS name or IP address of your SMTP server.
SMTP Port – The TCP/IP port for your SMTP server. Defaults to 587.
SMTP User – The user account.
SMTP Password – The password for the user account.
IMAP Host – The DNS name or IP address of your IMAP server.
IMAP SSL – Whether SSL/TLS is required to connect.
IMAP Port – The TCP/IP port for your IMAP server. Defaults to 993.
IMAP User – The user account.
IMAP Password – The password for the user account.
- If you do not expose your SMTP/IMAP to the Internet, adjust your firewall rules to allow SMTP/IMAP access from the Barracuda PhishLine data centers only.
- Your Barracuda PhishLine representative configures and tests the settings, preferably working with your email administrator.
