Configure Gateway AntiVirus to Quarantine Email

The WatchGuard Quarantine Server provides a safe, full-featured quarantine mechanism for any email messages suspected or known to contain viruses. The Quarantine Server receives email messages from the SMTP proxy.

To configure Gateway AntiVirus to quarantine email:

  1. When you run the Activate Gateway AntiVirus Wizard, you must make sure you use Gateway AntiVirus with the SMTP proxy. The POP3 and IMAP proxies do not support the Quarantine Server.
  2. When you set the actions spamBlocker applies for different categories of email, make sure you select the Quarantine action for at least one of the categories. When you select this action, you are prompted to configure the Quarantine Server if you have not already done so.

You can also select the Quarantine action for email messages identified by Virus Outbreak Detection to contain viruses.

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