Quarantine Summary Report

The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall sends you a daily quarantine summary report so you can view the quarantined messages you did not receive. From the quarantine summary report you can also add messages to your whitelist, delete messages, and have messages delivered to your inbox.

  • Click on the Deliver link to have that message delivered to your mailbox.
  • Click on the Whitelist link to have that message delivered to your Inbox and that sender whitelisted.
  • Click on the Delete link to remove that message from your quarantine.
  • Click on the View link to display that message in a new Message Details browser window.

Note that the quarantine summary report only goes out if new spam has been quarantined since the last notification, which is generated daily around 5AM. If there is no new quarantined mail for your account since the last notification cycle, or if you have logged into your account since then, no quarantine summary report will be generated and sent to you for that same 24 hour period. Note also that links in the Quarantine Summary Report for viewing, delivering, whitelisting or deleting a message from the quarantine inbox expire in 5 days from the date the report is sent out.
