Using content filter to determine policy quarantine retention settings

Hi,

 

I'd like to as kyour help to understand somehting I've read in the ESA user guide and that I don't understand.

 

"You can create filters that would simulate mail flow into and out of your policy quarantines so that messages are not released too quickly from the system (that is, the quarantine areas do not fill their allotted disk space too quickly)."

You guys have any idea what that means ?

 

Thanks.

So.. what they're pointing out is that you could BCC and then quarantine the BCC into a "test" policy quarantine, so you can see how quickly you'd fill up space based on your real mail flow, but without actually disturbing your real mail flow.
A common question new ESA users ask "well how many mail can my quarantines store?" "how much space is enough" etc... which all depends on what your actual mail is. And this is a way to get an idea of what you need.
