About the Quarantine Digest

The Quarantine Digest lists up to 100 of each end user's quarantined email messages, and provides a link for that account holder to access quarantined messages through the End User Quarantine console at the following web address for your region:

Use the Digest Settings screen to configure the schedule and format for the Quarantine Digest. If the digest is enabled, all domain recipients receive their own customized copy of the digest. Intended message recipients can use the End User Quarantine console to manage messages in quarantine themselves.

The Quarantine Digest email message features a template with customizable plain-text and HTML versions. Each version of the template can incorporate "tokens" to customize output for digest recipients.

If Inline Action is enabled on the Digest Settings screen, recipients can directly manage their quarantine from the digest email message. By enabling this function, you can relieve users of the necessity of logging on to the End User Quarantine console and manually approving quarantined messages or senders.


Anyone receiving this Quarantine Digest email message will be able to add any of these senders to the account holder's approved sender list. Therefore, administrators must warn digest recipients not to forward the Quarantine Digest email message. The Quarantine Digest for managed accounts is sent to the primary account. For more information about managed accounts, see About End-User Managed Accounts.

The Quarantine Digest Inline Action feature supports only client computers running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 or later and using only one of the following email clients:

  • Microsoft Outlook 2003 Service Pack 3 or later

  • Microsoft Outlook Express 6.0 or later
