Mimecast for Outlook allows you to manage your list of addresses/domains blocked, permitted, and automatically allowed through. All of these options are available through the Managed Senders view.

The Managed Senders section is split into 3 sections which can be managed separately:

  1. Blocked: The sender addresses and domains that have been manually added to your blocked list (e.g. they've been flagged as spam).
  2. Permitted: The sender addresses and domains that have been manually added to your permitted list.
  3. Auto Permitted: The sender addresses and domains that are automatically added to your permitted list because you have already sent email to them.

For step by step instructions (including screenshots) on the different options please see the Managing Senders page.

The Mimecast for Outlook plugin can be installed using the Software Center (ONLY available on UniSA Blue Plated devices). The following will walk you through installing software through the Software Center.
