Hi Brian.

This is one nice feature of the MPP quarantine.  The user can log on and enter his aliases.  It’s not automatic, but it’s better than nothing.  ☺

We front end our CGPro server with an inexpensive Barracuda Model 400. It helps combat all the spam but the problem is the Barracuda creates separate quarantine accounts for every possible address so it doesn't know that gibson_brian@wheatoncollege.edu and bgibson@wheatoncollege.edu are the same person on the back end. You can use their LDAP Accelerator feature to fix this but it means you have to keep an external LDAP database (and to be safe probably 2 of them) up to date with all of your possible email addresses.

It's a pain but it has kept the CGPro server protected from spam.
