If the spam filter cannot clearly determine if an email sent to you is spam, it will quarantine it and then send you an email report of any questionable email quarantined in the last 24 hours. You will be able to review this list and decide whether to release any e-mail from quarantine to be delivered to your inbox. 
 Reporting SpamIf however spam gets through it should be reported so that the spam filters can be improved.
