In the message view, you can perform these additional actions:
Print: Prints the content of the message.
Trusted: Enables you to add the sender’s email address or domain name to your Trusted Senders list (see
“Trusted Senders” on page 17). Trusting an address will ensure that all future messages from this address
will bypass the spam scanner and prevent it from getting quarantined. Note, however, that messages will
continue to undergo virus and attachment scanning, so messages might be quarantined if the content is
considered dangerous.
Blocked: Enables you to add the sender’s email address or domain name to your Blocked Senders list (see
“Blocked Senders” on page 16). Blocking an address will ensure that all future messages from this
address will always be filtered and prevent them from appearing in your Inbox.
Delete: This will mark the message for deletion. Note that you must also purge the message to completely
remove it from your Inbox and the mail server.
Reply, Reply to All and Forward: These are standard message actions, enabling you to reply to the sender, to
reply to multiple addresses (if several addresses were included in the To: and Cc: fields), or to forward
the message to another recipient.
Previous / Next:: These are navigation options that enable you to see the content of the Next or Previous
messages in the list without having to return to the Inbox view.
Close: This will close the message view and return you to the Inbox view.
Full Header: This is a toggle function that enables you to see the full message sending details. Click Full
Header to see the expanded panel; click Partial Header to collapse the panel into the regular view.

Composing new messages
Composing email messages in WebMail is very similar to using Outlook or other mail clients:

The Quarantine Folder

The Quarantine feature filters messages to determine if they are spam or if they contain forbidden
attachments or viruses. Quarantined messages are stored in the Quarantine folder, located under My
Folders.

Managing your quarantined mail

•   You can open an email message by double-clicking it to view the contents
•   You can see if the message contains an attachment, but you cannot view the attachment contents
•   Messages in Quarantine can be released to your Inbox if you feel they were filtered in error (these
    ‘good’ messages are called false positives). To release a message, select one and click Select Action:
    –   Release Message: will release the message to your Inbox
    –   Release and Report messages as Legitimate email: will release the message to your Inbox and send a
        copy to Vircom for analysis so that our filters can be modified, if necessary
    –   An additional option when releasing a message is to add the sender’s address to your Trusted
        Senders lists (see “Trusted Senders” on page 17).
•   You can also use the one-click Empty feature to delete all messages from your Quarantine folder
    (only). The messages in your other folders will remain intact.

Quarantined spam is filtered into 8 categories which makes identifying their content easier. Additional
categories include Virus, Phishing and Forbidden Attachment. A forbidden attachment is a type of file that
your system administrator has identified as a possible threat.

Administrators can release these messages.

Phishing Scanning Level:
•   Disabled: filtering is turned off

WebMail User Guide

Virus Scanning Level:
•   Normal: turns virus filtering on
•   Disabled: turns virus filtering off

Notifications:
This feature will send notification messages when email contains a virus. Use this feature with caution
because viruses are spread by hijacking email addresses found in victims’ address books, so the sender
address listed in the From: field may not be the actual sender of the message. Due to this issue, the
notification features are often blocked.

•   Senders receive notification: advises senders that they sent an email message containing a virus
•   Recipients receive notification: advises recipients that they have an email message containing a virus in
    their Quarantine

Forbidden Attachments

A forbidden attachment is a file type that could pose risks to the system. For example, a file with a “.vbs”
extension is commonly used to spread computer viruses via email. Forbidden Attachments are defined
by the email administrator.
Like viruses and phishing, messages containing dangerous attachments can only be quarantined or deleted.

Scanning Level:
•   Disabled: filtering is turned off
•   Normal: provides basic filtering; traps the most commonly-seen messages
•   Strong: advanced filtering; is slightly more aggressive than the Normal level
•   Extreme: will block the most messages, but can occasionally result in false positives
•   Click Save if changes are made

NOTE      You can change the scan level but you cannot define which file types are considered forbidden.
