Microsoft 365 Mail Quarantine

Microsoft 365 very effectively categorizes every email message sent to Dickinson users and quarantines those messages which have a high probability of being spam, phishing, or malware in an effort to keep users safe. Mail recipients with quarantined messages will periodically receive an email detailing those messages which Microsoft has identified as malicious/spam. This digest email includes several actions which can be taken (per message) to allow users to safely view the message, release it to be delivered to your inbox, or block the sender from sending further messages in the future.

Please note the Microsoft quarantine digest emails come from Help Desk, do NOT have the warning banner on them, and bear the subject: "Microsoft 365 security: You have messages in quarantine". These are legitimate emails from Microsoft and provide users more control over messages Microsoft has categorized as suspicious.

Click the 'more information' link below to view the Knowledge Base article on the email quarantine feature.

Thank you.
