Reported Email Tracker (BETA)

  • Last updated on

When working with a Barracuda Total Email Protection product, you might report an email as having been Incorrectly Blocked (false positive) or Incorrectly Delivered (false negative). These reports are automatically reviewed by the intelligence built into the Barracuda Threat Data Platform and by the Barracuda Threat Analysis Team. After Barracuda Networks evaluates any perceived threats in your reported email, you will receive a status update to let you know the determination about your reported item. The status update email you receive lists the results of Barracuda Networks' analysis.

If you report multiple emails, they are all handled in one daily status update email.

The Reported Email Tracker will benefit end users that utilize the Enhanced Feedback capability to report emails to Barracuda Networks. The capability is designed to send a daily digest email to users to inform them of the status of their submission.

Reported Email Tracker - New Feature (BETA)Enhanced Feedback Form - Released in 2021


This article provides background information on the various analysis results you might receive.

When you report emails to Barracuda Networks, you are contributing to our capability to detect and prevent attacks.

During the BETA phase, our systems will primarily rely on fingerprint-based blocks to assess potentially harmful emails. This approach allows us to collect valuable data and insights.

However, it is important to note that fingerprint-based blocks may not cover all scenarios adequately. In the upcoming GA (General Availability) release, Barracuda Networks will introduce machine learning based capability to automatically block similar emails submitted by users, which is a parallel initiative aimed at providing enhanced protection for our customers.

We appreciate your collaboration in our BETA phase as we work to improve our effectiveness in safeguarding your email communication.
