How-To: Configure an IMAP Quarantine Folder for Email Clients


Product: ModusMail

Version & Build: 4.3.459

If you are using PostgreSQL or MSSQL for your Quarantine database, you can give users IMAP access to their quarantine contents from their mail clients.  We provide a script that you can run on your database that will enable IMAP access and allow users to view their quarantine contents from Outlook or whatever mail client they are using.

MSSQL Quarantine Database Script:

1. Open the MSSQL Enterprise Manager

a. Create the database or use an existing one

2. Go to …Vircom\ModusProduct\DBStructures\SQL Server\Quarantine to locate the the SQL script (mssql_quarantine_imap.sql) to create the tables

a. Open MSSQL Query Analyzer and run the script “mssql_quarantine_imap.sql”

3. Create the ODBC connection

4. Open the Modus Console and go to System - Properties - Quarantine Database

5. Enter your ODBC information and click Apply

6. Go to System - Properties - Services and select IMAP

7. Click on Settings and enable IMAP4 Quarantine Access, click OK

8. Stop and Start all Modus services


PostgreSQL Quarantine Database Configuration:

For configuration details required to set-up the Quarantine database in PostgreSQL, please see How-To: Configure the Quarantine Database in Postgres and fuse the directions found in the attached Word document.

In order to allow IMAP access to the quarantine folder, you must use the  file and follow the directions above.


Mail Client Configuration:

Depending on the type of email clients users have, the new Quarantine folder must either be synchronized or set to "Show".  A :Quarantine folder will appear in the list along with a Spam subfolder.  Only messages trapped as spam will appear in the Spam subfolder (i.e. viruses or FAs will not be listed).  The contents of the Spam folder should synchronize with what is in WebMail / WebQuarantine.
