            What is Email Quarantine?
            Email quarantine is a service provided by Securolytics where email messages suspected to be spam or fraud are stored temporarily so they may be viewed. If an email addressed to a user is quarantined, you can configure Securolytics to send the user a Quarantine Notification listing all emails addressed to them that were were stopped because the message was suspected of being spam for fraud.

            How do users release messages from Email Quarantine?
            Users may release quarantined email by clicking the “release” link to the right of the message.

            How do users delete messages from Email Quarantine?
            Users are not required to delete unneeded messages from quarantine.  Securolytics will automatically delete unreleased quarantined messages based on your organization's retention policy.

            Can users check for newly quarantined messages without waiting for the next Quarantine Notification?
            Yes. Every Quarantine Notification contains a unique link to that user's personal "Real-Time Spam Quarantine Portal".  Users can view and release newly quarantined messages from this portal.

            What should users do if they still receive spam?
            In the event a user receives an occasional piece of spam, simply ask them to delete the email. If a user receives multiple pieces of spam per day, please have them to forward the original message(s) to Securolytics Support for analysis.
