Enable country authentication restrictions

Post by Doppelganger » Tue Oct 30, 2018 6:37 pm

Simply put this does not seem to work.

Localhost > properties > Auth Policies

Enable location services for filtering and authentication (Checked)
Enable country authentication restrictions (Checked)
Restrictions are set globaly

Only connections from the countries selected below can authenticate (Selected)
United States (Selected)

On webmail I had friends test from Scotland, Germany, Great Britain and Luxembourg and all four could authenticate. Is there something I have totally missed?

Thank you

What version of MailEnable Enterprise are you running? Did you restart the MailEnable application pools after enabling the policies?

I am using Mailenable professional V 10.25 and the filter by country doesn't seem to work, i'm still able to access webmail from different countries other than the allowed in the Management console.

Please let me know how to get it to work properly.
