Protection Report - Mailbox

The Periodic User Report sends the recipient(s) an overview of the previous day's messages that were quarantined. This can be set up at the Domain level where you can manually add users, import a CSV file of multiple users and enable the report for all recipients, or at the Email Level for the logged in email recipient.

Access to this report from the Domain Level or Email Level Control panel is found by selecting Reporting > Protection Report - Mailbox.

Protection reports cannot be configured to run and send on a particular date and time. If you want to configure a report to do this (like a daily digest), the Email Scout Reports feature provides this functionality. For more information, see View and Edit Email Scout Reports. You can automatically enable Email Scout Reports to run up to three times daily at specified times from the Domain Settings page at Domain Level - see Automatically Enable Daily Email Scout Reports.

If catch-all is detected on your destination mail server, the Protection Reports will not send. For more information, see Catch-all and Mail Assure.
