Release Spam Quarantined Email

You can release only quarantined spam. You can do it in one of the following ways:

  • Click Release against an email.
  • Select the emails, select Release from the available options and click Go.


You can't click the link in the quarantine digest email to release emails directly. The link in the quarantine digest email takes you to the user portal. You must sign in and release the emails from there.


You can't release or download virus-infected emails.

The firewall scans the released emails and delivers these to your inbox.
