Recently I noticed that WEBMAIL category is missing from SonicOS 5 & 6 but its available in SonicOS 7. Is it removed from Sonic OS 5 & 6? then how we can block webmail traffic through App Control?

    Support gave me a workaround for segregating the webmail service from Email App category, For that you would have to create the application match objects through the Shell.

    Under Config mode via SSH session:


    match-object WEBMAIL

       type application-list

        no applications

        application category id 58 app id 215

        application category id 58 app id 1018

        application category id 58 app id 1449

        application category id 58 app id 396

        application category id 58 app id 119

        application category id 58 app id 1464

        application category id 58 app id 645

        application category id 58 app id 916

        application category id 58 app id 145

        application category id 58 app id 146

        application category id 58 app id 644

        application category id 58 app id 968

        application category id 58 app id 163

        application category id 58 app id 161

        application category id 58 app id 164

        application category id 58 app id 397

        application category id 58 app id 1574

        application category id 58 app id 917




    This will create WEBMAIL match object that can be used in the App rules to block the web mail traffic.

    NB: As well as I noticed that, WEB MAIL category they removed from regardless the SonicOS version & its merged with EMAIL APP category.

    I have checked and our customers has same issues. I hope they are going to resolve ASAP

    Support is telling that, their Back end team merged the Webmail category into the Email App category.

    How we can segregate the Email App & Webmail signature from the same category. Their back end team mistake they are trying to coverup with this merging story.

    How they can do this like severe changes without inform the customer as a reputed security vendor.
