Anyone who knows or guesses the dashboard url may see who has sent or received an email from whom. As far as I know this is violating the legal privacy regulations at least in Germany.

It is too bad that access to the CleanMail Dashboard cannot be blocked, password protected or limited to specific IPs. This makes the product virtually unusable for government agencies, medium or large organzations or people with privacy in mind.

We have already suggested this as a feature request to development but have been told that there were no plans to implement limited access to the dashboard.

Not true! Access to the dashboard can be limited to IP addresses, the process is outlined in this thread:

The "reference" chapter in the manual describes the configuration settings involved.

You are right insofar that there are no plans at the moment to make configuration of the listening interface and the Allow/Deny settings available in the admin application. But you can still get it done with a text editor.
