Incidents correspond to a threat remediation event and display all the associated messages, by recipient. This guide describes how to access and search the incidents queue. From the Incidents tab, you can:

  • View full details of remediation occurrences, including the type of actions taken, and the number of removed or restored messages.
  • View individual message details in full, in order to investigate a potential threat or the history of a message. 
  • Manually remove a malicious message from the user's mailbox, or restore the message if it's later deemed safe.
  • Export a single or multiple incidents to a file.
See the Threat Remediation: Removing / Restoring Messages page for further detail on actioning messages.
