Confused... only info given is - Categories - Mail From; Rules - Simple view with *@etc & *@*etc; and Actions to take - None Matched - Deny. https://www.watchguard.com/help/docs/help-center/en-US/Content/en-US/Fireware/proxies/smtp/proxy_smtp_mail_from_to_c.html "You can use the Address: Mail From ruleset to put limits on email and to allow email into your network only from specified senders. The default configuration is to allow email from all senders. You can add, delete, or modify rules. For example, you can create rules to deny emails from a specific sender ([email protected]) or to deny all emails from a domain (*@example.com)." so, all the above suggests B, no?

I agree, the answer should be C. B does not make any sense in this case; this is an outgoing SMTP rule. B would pertain to an incoming rule.

The meaning of configuration is "Allow only email sender from domain and sub domain of example.com." I think "C." is make sense because for smtp relay they trust the ip address so we can fake sender for some reason. this configure can prevent you to fake domain but you can still fake name also.

Answer is C - This is an outgoing SMTP Policy. The config shown permits traffic from example.com, anything that doesn't match that gets denied. If someone tries to spoof your mail server and send mail as example1.com, this will be denied.

@DanTEC How would that be C? RCP TO is only for relay purposes and RCP FROM is to allow specific users as trusted senders. I don't see why one wrong answers makes up for the other? -In my book, the configuration should have had "If matched, Allow" or this quesiton doesnt' make sense at all.

The DENY is only for "NONE MATCHED", so its impossible to deny mail from example domain. The correct answer is C.

That's not correct: see at page 172 of the Essentials Study Guide (version August 2019): "You can configure the SMTP proxy action to provide basic mail relay protection. In the proxy action, in the Address > Rcpt To settings, configure the proxy to allow messages addressed to the domains your SMTP server receives mail for, and to deny messages addressed to any other domain.". So it's correct the answer suggested by the web portal.
