Rule Caution Indication

The caution indicator is displayed in the rules table to indicate that a rule will never be triggered. This can happen when you have two rules of the same type, but the rule listed first applies to all senders or recipients, and also discontinues processing after it has been triggered.


The first rule on the Configuration > Policy > Anti-Spam page has been configured to discard all messages containing unscannable attachments. The third rule on the Configuration > Policy > Anti-Spam has been configured to also discard unscannable attachments, but only for one specific group. In this case, the third rule will never trigger, because the first rule results in all messages of the same type being discarded. The caution indicator will be displayed next to the third rule.
