Working with Mailing Lists

This article discusses how to manage the mailing lists that determine who receives email notifications from the Cato Management Application.

Overview of Mailing Lists

You can create email alerts and notifications in a variety of screens in the Cato Management Application, for example for firewall rules, or block actions with the Anti-Malware services. The mailing list determines who receives the alert or notification that the Cato Management Application sends out.

In the Mailing Lists screen, you can create new mailing lists to define the recipients for these alerts or notifications. There is a predefined list which contains all admins defined in the Cato Management Application. In addition, you can create new mailing lists with specific admins and/or external email addresses.


Creating a New Mailing List

You can create new mailing lists in the Mailing List page. In addition, you can also create new mailing lists on other pages where you configure alerts and notifications.

To create a new mailing list:

  1. From the navigation pane, click Administration > Subscriptions > Mailing Lists.

  2. Click New. The Create List panel opens.

  3. Enter the Name for the mailing list.

  4. Add the Members of this mailing list.

    1. To add admins for the Cato Management Application:

      1. In the Edit Members window, in the Admins tab select the Cato Management Application Admins you are adding to this mailing list.

      2. From the drop-down menu, select Administrator.

      3. Enter or select the Cato Management Application admins for this list.

    2. To add external users to this email list:

      1. From the drop-down menu, select Non Admin Email.

      2. Enter the email address of the external user.

      3. Click add.png (Add).

      4. Repeat the previous two steps for each user.

  5. Click Apply. The mailing list is added to the window.
