  • 1

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST CONTACT SUPPORT FIRST TO ENABLE THIS FOR EACH DOMAIN YOU WISH TO MANAGE IN THIS WAY AS YOU WILL RECEIVE A PASSWORD SPECIFICALLY FOR USE SETTING UP THIS ACCOUNT. THIS IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OUTLOOK 2013 UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO AN OUTLOOK BUG, IT DOES WORK WITH PREVIOUS VERSIONS.

It’s possible to access the email quarantine via IMAP which gives you access to the following email functions from your email client:

  • Caught: All incoming messages which have been quarantined can be found in this folder. It’s not necessary to report these emails as Spam again, as they have already been classified as such. These emails will automatically expire.

  • Release & Train: This is a write-only folder (which cannot be accessed by the email client). Emails drag/dropped from “Caught” to this folder will be delivered to the recipient and reported as a classification mistake to our central systems

  • Release: This is a write-only folder (which cannot be accessed by the email client). Emails drag/dropped from “Caught” to this folder will be delivered to the recipient only.

  • Not Spam: This is a write-only folder (which cannot be accessed by the email client). Emails drag/dropped from “Caught” or “Training Requested” to this folder will be reported as a classification mistake to our central systems (it will not be delivered to the recipient)

  • Spam: This is a write-only folder (which cannot be accessed by the email client). Emails drag/dropped to this folder will be reported as a Spam to our central systems (it will not be delivered to the recipient). This is useful to report spam which was not blocked correctly directly from the email client.
