Outlook Security Enhancement FAQ

The email system has been upgraded recently for better spam email filtering. In the past, the subject of a spam email would be prefixed with "[Suspected Spam]".

In the upgraded version, the email system will hold back suspected spam emails in the server and send notification email to the user for future action. Colleagues will receive email from with the subject "[Postmaster] Messages on hold for"

The notification email will prompt user for further action. The actions listed in the notification email are as below:-

  • Release - The system would forward the mail to your inbox only for this time.  You will be prompted again via notification email when the Sender sends again.

  • Block - The system will permanently discard all emails from this Sender.

  • Permit - The system will always deliver all emails from this sender to your mailbox.  No further prompting.
