Quarantine Settings

Click on the Quarantine Settings tab.

In the Quarantine Settings section you have three options:

  1. Enable Quarantine
    You have two settings in this section, Yes and No.

    If you set your Quarantine Enable to Yes, messages that the server is "pretty sure" are Spam will be sent to your Quarantine Inbox instead of your email client inbox. Messages are kept in quarantine for 15 days before being permanently deleted.

    If you set your Quarantine enable to No, messages the server is "pretty sure" are Spam will be delivered to your email client inbox with a prefix of [QUAR] in the subject line. Messages that the server thinks might be Spam but is not sure, are tagged with [SPAM] in the subject line and delivered to your regular email inbox.

  2. Quarantine Notification
    This is where you set if you wish to receive a notification from the server that you have messages in your Quarantine Inbox.

    You can set this notification to daily, weekly or never and can choose to specify another email address which the server will send the notification to (it defaults to your Webster address). Messages are kept in quarantine for 15 days before being permanently deleted.

  3. Default Language
    Here you may choose the default language in which messages are displayed. Make sure that you click the Save Changes button after making any change in any section.

Spam Settings

  1. Click on the Spam Settings tab
