Configuring User Privileges for Spam Management

You can set whether users have web access to manage their quarantined messages and set the form of authentication required for this access.

For complete descriptions of the features that can be made available to users, see the End User Web Quarantine documentation.

  1. Select the Enable end user web quarantine access check box to grant users access to a web page on which they can manage their own quarantined messages and set anti-spam options.
  2. Select one of the Authentication option buttons:
    • Active Directory: You must have Active Directory server access configured to use this option. When using this method, users log in by entering their assigned Active Directory username and password.
    • Custom list: Create the list by clicking the associated Define users button, which opens the Email/Password List dialog box. When using this method, you must supply users with the email/login and password they will need to access the web quarantine.

    With both of these options, users log in by pointing their browsers to the Web Quarantine address: http://<EUWQ_host>.<domain>

  3. Set any Options that you want to grant your users:
    • Select Enable allow/block lists to allow users to create and use personalized allow and block lists for hosts and senders.
    • Select Allow wildcard usage in allow/block lists to let users use wildcards when defining their personalized allow and block lists for hosts and senders.
    • Select Allow users to opt-out of spam checking to allow users to bypass spam checking of their messages.
  4. On the Default user interface language drop-down list, select the users’ preferred language. Users also have the option of personalizing the language via a feature in the End User Web Quarantine.
    Note The End User Web Quarantine and its associated help file are displayed to users in the default language set by an administrator or in the language they have selected for themselves. In addition to English, help pages are available in the following languages: Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Swedish.
  5. Click Configure in the Configure end user service panel to set the port used by the End User Web Quarantine.
