Set up Assisted Mail Submission (AMS) in Exchange Online

To submit the sent Zivver messages to the Zivver SMTP Server, you must filter those messages out, to deliver them securely to the recipient. Otherwise the server delivers those messages insecurely.

Do these steps to create a Rule in Microsoft Exchange Online:

  1. Go to the Exchange Admin Center.
  2. Click on Mail flow in the menu on the left.
  3. Click on Rules.
  4. Click on Add a rule.
  5. Click on Create a new rule.
  6. Enter a name.

    For example: Zivver Plugin Assisted Mail Submission.

  7. Under *Apply this rule if… select The message headers….

  8. Under Select one select and then matches these text patterns.

  9. Click on Enter text.

  10. Enter zivver-relay.

  11. Click Save.

  12. Click on *Enter words.

  13. Enter ..*. (that is 2 dots, 1 asterisk/wildcard, 1 dot).

  14. Click Add.

  15. Click Save.

  16. Under *Do the following select Redirect the message to.

  17. Under Select one select the following connector.

  18. Select the connector that you have created in the previous section.

  19. Click Save.

  20. Click Next.

  21. Enable the option Stop processing more rules.

  22. Enable the option Defer the message if rule processing doesn’t complete.

  23. Click Next.

  24. Click Finish.

  25. Click Done.

The rule is created and already enabled.

Make sure that the priority of all the existing rules is correct.

If other rules must process a sent Zivver message first, make sure that the rule that you created for PAMS has a lower priority. Also, make sure that the other rules do not have this setting active: Stop processing other rules.

After the rule is already enabled, every outbound message that has the mail header zivver-relay is submitted to the Zivver SMTP Server. There will be no messages with this mail header until you enable the PAMS function in the Zivver Office Plugin.
