The console also includes a "Help" link in the upper left. Quarantined mail is held for up to 14 days and then deleted if no action has been taken.

Users who wish to customize their spam settings or view their quarantined messages before Jan. 3 can access the Spam Firewall Console at At the console, you can adjust the tag, quarantine and block settings higher or lower to meet your preferences.
