Outlook:  Managing Quarantined Emails

Microsoft Outlook is the campus-wide email system for all SVSU students, employees, and alumni.  The server implements a spam-content filter that places known spam messages into quarantine holding.  All SVSU email users will receive a daily spam notification report of messages that have been sent to quarantine.  This article instructs how to release legitimate messages that had been inadvertently detected as spam, from quarantine, to your Outlook Inbox.
