Quarantine settings

You can specify the quarantine area on XG Firewall. You can also specify the settings for the quarantine digest, an email sent to users that lists their quarantined emails.

You can specify the frequency of the quarantine digest. You can also specify the source email addresses to exclude their emails from the list.

The quarantine digest contains the date and time of email receipt, sender and recipient email addresses, and the email subject.

Note The quarantine digest is available only in Sophos Firewall XG 105, Cyberoam CR25iNG, Sophos UTM SG105, and higher models.
Note The quarantine digest doesn’t apply to XG Firewall appliances with built-in Wi-Fi.
