Example: How to Protect your Confidential E-mail.

ACME Ltd. has implemented a new Notes' plug-in for sending confidential email. By installing the plug-in, a new CONFIDENTIAL mail form is used for sending e-mail. The plug-in would automatically add the word "CONFIDENTIAL: " at the beginning of the subject field. The Notes administrator found that there is no way to trace the flow of these confidential e-mails. For example, which servers are involved in the routing of these confidential e-mails, does the receiver alter the content of these confidential e-mails etc..

To improve the usage of the plug-in, the Notes administrator can create a mail monitor to audit the flow of all these confidential e-mails.

  1. Open the SecurTrac Configuration Database (SCTCFG.NSF).

  7. In of 'Monitor' tab, type " @Begins(Subject; "Confidential:") ".
  8. In section of 'Monitor --> Mail Action' tab, check the field 'Log Mail Content'
  9. In section of 'Monitor --> Mail Action' tab, select 'Log Attachment(s) Info and Content'.
