Configure the SMTP-Proxy to Quarantine Email

The WatchGuard Quarantine Server provides a safe, full-featured quarantine mechanism for any email messages suspected or known to be spam or to contain viruses. This repository receives email messages from the SMTP-proxy and filtered by spamBlocker.

To configure the SMTP-proxy to quarantine email:

  1. Add the SMTP-proxy to your configuration.
  2. Enable spamBlocker in the proxy definition.
    Or, enable spamBlocker and select to enable it for the SMTP-proxy.
  3. Configure the actions spamBlocker applies for different categories of email.
    Make sure you select the Quarantine action for at least one of the categories.
    For more information, go to Activate and Configure spamBlocker.
    If the Quarantine Server is not already configured, when you select this action you are prompted to configure it.
  4. (Optional) Select the Quarantine action for email messages identified by Virus Outbreak Detection as containing viruses.

The current version of the spamBlocker engine does not support Virus Outbreak Detection. For more information, go to this Knowledge Base article.
