Before You Start
Before continuing with the provisioning and configuration of the Spambrella service, it is recommended that you have the information listed below.
Information required for configuring Spambrella
Information required for configuring G Suite
Setup Inbound Mail Flow
Spambrella is deployed between the customer’s G Suite environment and the Internet. Inbound mail is routed to Spambrella by changing the customer’s MX records. After email is processed by Spambrella it is routed to G Suite.
Locate your MX record for the domain in G Suite
These values will be necessary when you add your domains to Spambrella.
Sign-in to the Spambrella user interface. Adding domain(s) to Spambrella
The delivery and failover destinations refers to the “points to” values captured in the previous section.
Configure G Suite
Configure Inbound Mail Gateway
When this setting is enabled, Gmail scans the message header to locate the first occurrence of an IP address that is not listed in the Gateway IPs. This is referred to as the “external IP.” Gmail considers the “external IP” as the sending IP and uses this IP for SPF checks and spam evaluation.
Setup Outbound Mail Flow
Spambrella is deployed between the customer’s G Suite environment and the Internet. Outbound mail is routed to Spambrella by configuring an outbound mail gateway. This will route all outbound mail to Spambrella.
Enable Outbound Relaying
Add Service IP addresses to your Inbound Gateway
Configure G Suite
Configure Outbound Mail Gateway
Update Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
When sending outbound email through the Spambrella gateway, recipients receive mail sent from Spambrella rather than G Suite mail servers. If the recipient’s mail service attempts to verify that the message came from your domain, it must confirm that the gateway server is an authorized mail server for your domain.
To enable this, you need to add the Spambrella SPF record to your domain.
Spambrella rescued us and our customers from uncertain times with Postini/Google and now McAfee. As an MSP we have relied upon Spambrella and their support for just over 2 years. Our experience has been positive and we have overcome obstacles using their support team for anything email related (sometimes out of their scope). We recommend Spambrella to all of our customers. Thanks!
With over 4k end user email users it was top priority that our migration was stable and quick. Spambrella proved to be the perfect choice with hands on technical assistance. We worked late nights migrating our customers from another email security vendor that increased their pricing without prior warning. We are very happy with Spambrella and will continue to recommend this service.
Our experience with Spambrella has been great.
Support is very responsive and provide a high level of value.
Monotype is one of the world’s best-known providers of type-related products, technologies and expertise.
Having moved away from McAfee, we quickly realised our customers had not settled. We decided to set up an open webinar with all customers and Spambrella. Over 80% of our customers opted to move and a positive decision it was!
The Spambrella team have been excellent. I highly recommend their services and technical expertise.
Spambrella has been a valued service addition to RCS London. Our clients are very happy with the security features Spambrella provides and the user interaction with the service has been simple and welcomed by all. RCS is a fast growth MSP in London UK and the business requires valuable additions like Spambrella. We recommend Spambrella to other MSP’s looking for a monthly subscription email security service.
As an MSP Kingdom provides best of breed packaged services to its clients. Spambrella was brought in to replace both our premium and SMB email security/filter options. Spambrella is quick and simple to set up and administer. The Proofpoint connection is valuable and enables us to quickly deploy policy based encryption which is becoming popular. Overall we cannot fault Spambrella as a service or as a team.
