Re: Spam filters not trapping obvious pishing emails - Lloyds bank
Not sure if there's anything we can do specifically about this but I'll give @bobpullen a tag to see what he suggests.
It wouldn't be quarantined, because there's no virus payload.
Discarded, perhaps (assuming you have that option enabled), although as you'll be aware, these things aren't an exact science and things can slip through the net from time to time.
