Text add-ons

When a message receives a specific disposition from Cloud Email Security (formerly Area 1), you can add additional information to the subject and body of each message.

This information provides additional context to your employees, which can help them make better decisions if you choose to have a more permissive email policy:

  • Subject prefixes: Can tell recipients which category the message is in. Subject prefixes always state the final disposition of the message.
  • Body prefixes: Provide more context about why the message was added to a specific category. Body prefixes include all the detections that were triggered. This information depends on the prefixes you enable.

For example, an email might have the dispositions EXTERNAL MALICIOUS in the subject, and EXTERNAL MALICIOUS SUSPICIOUS UCE in its body.

  2. Go to Settings (the gear icon).

  3. On Email Configuration, go to Email Policies > Text Add-Ons.
