Can PaloAlto block content of subject of email?

For example: I have config the feature data fitlering for block data pattern such as :" .*Salary, .*Confidential". When I send email out with subject: "Salary or Confidential", can PaloAlto detect and block this email? And can PaloAlto detect and block content of body, attached file of email when I send out with content which has word such as : "Salary, Confidential". Can PaloAlto block according to protocol such as : SMTP, IMAP, FTP, HTTP,...etc?

Pls, help me to answer it ASAP.

Tks for helping.

Yes. It should work unless the email is using some special encoding that we don't currently support.

Thanks,

May I ask you. Can PaloAlto detect and block when I transfer file which has the content, including words such as: "Salary, Confidential" via chat yahoo messenger or skype?

Yes for yahoo IM file transfer but no for skype file transfer (skype uses  a proprietary encryption for sending files).

How does it handle the block from the SMTP perspective?  If I send a message and it gets blocked do I get notified or does the PAN just drop the connection?

We  will drop the connection... currently no notification is provided to the user but there are plans to add such functionality in future.

Also, note that if SMTP connection is dropped by any intermediate network device (such as in this case by the firewall) SMTP server is going to retry transmitting the email till it exhausts the maximum retries configured.

Thanks,
Sandeep
