Previous to the upgrade, when spam email messages were detected by this filter, you would receive a Spam Quarantine Summary email. That email would look like what you see in the image to the right. You then had your choice of a number of Actions, including to deliver the message, whitelist the sender, delete the email, or view the email.

When you clicked a given action, it opened a browser window, automatically logged you into the spam filter, and performed the indicated action.

Moving forward, to increase security, when you receive those Spam Quarantine Summary emails, you will click on the appropriate Action, the browser window will open, but it will require you to manually log into the spam filter.
