trigger_target   RULE_NAME

PhishTag enables administrators to rewrite links in emails that trigger certain tests, preferably anti-phishing blocklist tests. The plugin will inhibit the blocking of a portion of the emails that trigger the test by SpamAssassin, and let them pass to the users' inbox after the rewrite. It is useful in providing training to email users about company policies and general email usage.

The following options can be set by modifying the configuration file.

  • trigger_ratio percentage_value

    Sets the probability in percentage that a positive test will trigger the email rewrite, e.g. 0.1 will rewrite on the average 1 in 1000 emails that match the trigger.

  • trigger_target RULE_NAME http_url

    The name of the test which would trigger the email rewrite; all the URLs will be replaced by http_url.
