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.
The Firebox uses the HTTPS protocol to send requests to the spamBlocker server. If traffic from the Firebox must go through a perimeter firewall to reach the Internet, make sure the firewall does not block HTTPS traffic.
To configure spamBlocker to quarantine email:
- When you configure spamBlocker you must enable spamBlocker for the SMTP-proxy. The POP3 and IMAP-proxies do not support the Quarantine Server.
- When you set the actions spamBlocker applies for different categories of email, select the Quarantine action for at least one category.
