Preset policies have suddenly started notifying users of quarantined messages

Iron Contributor

Hi all.  We have been using preset policies (standard and strict) for some time and were happy with the fact that they don't notify users of messages which have been quarantined (and nor is it possible to change the notification policy).  However, quarantine notifications suddenly started turning up in users' mailboxes at the weekend.


Have Microsoft changed something or released an unplanned change?  Hoping you can help clarify the situation.

@AnonTechSpecialist I understand. I don't have an ETA on when we will address this but certainly agree with the ask and is top of mind for us.

@OzOscroft I can't believe how dumbfoundingly stupid this change is. It opens the quarantine up to inexperienced users and LOWERS my security and it defeats the purpose of having the rules by spamming my users with "you have spam" emails. 

It's time to start looking at moving the company to another platform for mail.
