All Barracuda Spam Firewall all models, all firmware versions.
All Barracuda Spam Firewall model 400s and below, all firmware versions.


Please follow this link to determine the indicator lights on your Barracuda Spam Firewall:


The Barracuda Spam Firewall has five indicator lights on the front panel that blink when the system processes email. The attached jpeg displays the location of each of the lights. 

The following list describes each indicator light in order from left to right:
  • Block Email (Red) Blinks when email is blocked from either spam or virus detection.
  • Warn Email (Yellow) Blinks for each email that is either tagged as spam or quarantined. 
  • Email (Green) Blinks when the unit receives email. 
  • Disk (Green) Blinks during disk activity. 
  • Power (Green) Displays a solid green light when the system is powered on.
