Hi,

Microsoft released "Outlook for iOS" a few days ago.

As you can read all over the web, they epic-failed and caused a security nightmare.
Details here:

  • You cannot use links until you have posted more than 5 messages. - srly?
  • Google for 'warning outlook ios'
The recomendation is to block the app from accessing your server using a User-Agent based filter.

Is there a way in Kerio Connect to do that?

Thanks.

You can disable option "Allow unsupported devices". Amazon servers, which download the data on behalf of that mobile application use UserAgent "Outlook-iOS-Android/1.0", which is not on the list of supported clients in Kerio Connect.

Hello,

I need block a few MUA and this looks good - https://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/connect/content/email-clien ts/mobile-devices/managing-user-mobile-devices-1307.html?Hig hlight=unsupported

I assume that for Mail User Agents you need to insert similarly to LegacyDevices:
<list name="BlockedDevices">
<listitem>
<variable name="UserAgent">Outlook-iOS-Android/1.0</variable>
</listitem>
<listitem>
<variable name="UserAgent">CloudMagic</variable>
</listitem>
<listitem>
<variable name="UserAgent">curl/7.76.0</variable>
</listitem>
<listitem>
<variable name="UserAgent">Go-http-client/1.1</variable>
</listitem>
</list>

I will try the evening and I hope it will work.

Hello,

I'm taking it back. It does not work. On the contrary, the configuration will be adjusted and all devices will be blocked!

The configuration is overwritten to that state:
<list name="BlockedDevices">
<list>
<variable name="DeviceType"></variable>
</listitem>
</list>

I also wrote to support and we should try to create a Feature Request or use an MDM solution.

We will block directly on NGINX, which we have before Kerio Connect.
