Office 365: Exchange Online Protection (EOP)

Office 365 users can check at any time for quarantined email.  

Once logged in you may need to wait a few moments while any messages quarantined are loaded.

Use Advanced Search To Filter And Locate Quarantined Messages

You can filter your own spam-quarantined items based on several different conditions using advanced search. You can use these conditions separately or in combination with one another. The search will provide a list of messages that meet all your filter criteria.

1      Click Advanced search  to open the Advanced search window.

2      Select any combination of the following conditions. Select the associated check box in order to enable each condition. Wildcards aren’t supported.

a       Sender email address   Specify the email address of the person who sent the message.

b      Subject  Specify the subject line text of the message.

c       Received   You can select that the message was received by the quarantine within the past 24 hours (Today), within the past 48 hours (Last 2 days), within the past week (Last 7 days), or you can select a custom time interval during which the message was received by the quarantine.

d      Expires   You can select that the message will be deleted from the quarantine within the next 24 hours (Today), within the next 48 hours (Next 2 days), within the next week (Next 7 days), or you can select a custom time interval during which the message will be deleted from the quarantine.
Note: The length of time that messages are stored in the quarantine is controlled by your administrator.

Click ok to start running the advanced search.

Release a spam-quarantined message and optionally report it as not junk

After finding a spam-quarantined message, you can release the message to your inbox. When a message is released to your inbox, the service re-scans the released message for malware but skips spam filtering.  You can also optionally report the message as ‘not junk’ (also known as a false positive message) to the Microsoft Spam Analysis team, who will evaluate and analyze the message. Depending on the results of the analysis, the service-wide spam content filter rules may be adjusted to allow the message through.

To release a spam-quarantined message to your inbox and optionally report it as not junk

1      Select a message, click the Release Message  icon, and then from the list, click one of the following options:

a       Release message will simply release the message to your inbox.

b      Release message and report as not junk will release the message to your inbox and report it as not junk to the Microsoft Spam Analysis Team.

2      Click ok to confirm your decision and return to the main screen.  If you click the Refresh  icon to refresh your data, and then double-click the message, you should see that it’s been released to your inbox.

Quarantine Email

By default, quarantine emails are delivered every 3 days.  This can be adjusted.
