PADSTE employees received this note from Terry about the email quarantine:
"On December 18th, you may recall that we informed you that e-mail from non white-listed sites (.gov, and others that you have allowed in the past) would be quarantined and that you would be able to release messages as needed over and after the winter break. (See http://int.lanl.gov/security/cyber/incident/alert.shtml ).
Due to unforeseen technical and configuration problems, you were unable to release quarantined e-mail on-demand over the holiday break. We apologize for this inconvenience. Your e-mail was kept over the holiday and not lost. At any point now you can either release the messages from your proof point digest that was e-mailed to you Sunday night or Monday. The server is very busy with people releasing their e-mail. We ask that you be patient and persistent to ensure you get the e-mail that you need. We will not automatically release any of the e-mail that was quarantined over the break. You can release any message, but e-mail that was quarantined and not released by the end of next week (1/16) will be automatically deleted."
