Managing Spam

Accessing the Quarantine:

You do not have to log in to your Quarantine to manage your spam. If all of the messages in your
End User Digest" are spam, simply leave them alone and Proofpoint will automatically delete them in 14 days.

You will only see new spam messages in your End User Digest. It is when you want to view all the messages in your Quarantine that you need to use the "Manage My Account" option

If you do not see the option in your "End User Digest" to manage your account, please do the following:

Select the link "Request Safe/Blocked Senders List" from your End User Digest. This will send you a new email message that will now have the option "Manage My Account"

Access your daily quarantine by selecting "Manage My Account" in the Spam Quarantine Digest:
