A place to ask questions, connect with others, and stay in the know
It has recently come to my attention that there is a lack of clarity around how PureCloud handles spam emails. It is also clear that sometimes, emails are incorrectly labeled as spam and you want greater control over how spam emails are handled.
I want to make sure that I let everyone here know how PureCloud handles spam and virus emails today, what are our near term and longer term plans and allow opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback or comments.
From a technology standpoint, PureCloud leverages Amazon SES to receive and send emails. Amazon SES has various measures in place to detect spam emails and also to detect emails that may contain viruses.Spam handling: Today, PureCloud receives the spam verdict from Amazon and if the spam verdict indicates that the email is spam, PureCloud disconnects the email. The email is never delivered to an agent.Virus handling: PureCloud doesn't let emails that may contain viruses through to agents as well. This is based on the information we receive from Amazon. We don't plan to change that at the present time.

We are working through a design that would allow you greater control around spam emails. We have thought about providing an option on the email configuration screen around how you want emails marked as spam handled. Do you want to allow them to be routed? Do you want to disconnect them automatically? Then within email flows, we considered providing the spam verdict so that you can make decision on which spam emails to let through and which spam emails you don't want to let through. We've also talked about improved reporting around spam emails - any thoughts around what may be helpful would be appreciated.
Please let us know if you have any comments or feedback.
