"In the past, whether we got phishing emails or spam emails, they all went into our inbox. Now, the system is set to automatically put all phishing emails or spam-type emails that it doesn't block but suspects that they're suspicious, into the junk email folder. It gives users a way of giving it a second look or a second thought as to whether this is a real email or not, rather than seeing all the emails in their inbox. Now that they see it in their junk email box, they take further consideration and look at the email harder and determine if it is a phishing email."

More Barracuda Essentials Cons »

"In terms of improvement, I would like for some of the reporting to be a little bit more robust. There should be more options for recording and more options for searching. For example, more fields to report against, more search criteria, more date filters, etc. They should also make the searching capability a little bit more flexible."
