I am now getting a new spam -email alerting- alert:an email addressed to you has been quarantined
I got 70 these  could these be from the same source of the cnn spam?

Are you sure these are spam and not legitimate notifications that a virus has been quarantined?

Re: anbody else getting new spam? e=mail address quarantined

I have received several of these recently.
Mine are obviously spam but the quarantine check seems to get applied any final spam check.
Am not inclined to recover them, explore headers and mark as spam because of the virus.
In the inbox there is just the quarantined message, so that is unsuitable to mark as spam.
What do we do - just allow the quarantined store to build up till some PlusNet clear out time - that will never deal with the spam element

On the page that Bob Pullen referenced above it says
'Note: Quarantined emails are held on our system for 7 days.'

Thanks bobp
Whilst that explains how they are disposed of I still am surprised that the not marked as spam and also quarantined
