Debugging Mail Flow Using Test Messages: Trace
Cisco IronPort AsyncOS 7.5 for Email Daily Management Guide
This section notes messages that are not flagged to be
processed by anti-virus scanning. If messages are to be
processed by anti-virus scanning for the listener, the
message is processed and the verdict returned is
printed. If the Cisco IronPort appliance is configured to
“clean” infected messages, that information is noted. If
configured to bounce or drop the messages based on
the verdict, that information is printed and the
command processing stops.
Note: This step is skipped if anti-virus scanning is
unavailable on the system. If anti-virus scanning is
available but has not been enabled with a feature key,
that information is also printed in this section.
See the “Anti-Virus” chapter in the Cisco IronPort
AsyncOS for Email Configuration Guide for more
All content filters that are enabled on the system are
evaluated by the test message at this point. For each
filter, the rule is evaluated, and if the end result is
“true,” each of the actions in that filter are then
performed in sequence. A filter may contain other
filters as an action, and the nesting of filters is
unlimited. The results of the content filters, processed
in order, are printed in this section.

IronPort AsyncOS for Email Configuration Guide.
