Microsoft Outlook - Junk Mail and Quarantine Management

Daily updates are sent from quarantine@messaging.microsoft.com listing the incoming emails that were quarantined.  Action links are provided for each quarantined item such as preview, release, release and allow sender, block sender, etc.

You can manage your quarantined items online at https://protection.office.com/quarantine. If you are prompted to log in, enter your UTRGV credentials. Select an item by checking the box to the left of it.  Then, take the desired action on the pane that appears on the right side.
