Hi there:

 

With the growth in phishing campaigns, we've realized that although our users have gotten better at reporting suspicious messages that make it through the email gateway, there's a gap in our ability to manage responses to those messages.

 

It would be a useful feature of the gateway if outgoing replies to incoming emails we have manually marked as spam would be blocked, just by message, not by original sender.  Otherwise it seems kind of fruitless to spend a lot of time identifying spam that has already been delivered, other than in hopes of improving Barracuda's identification heuristics.  We warn recipients of some messages that make it through, but that depends on them seeing our warnings before they respond to the malicious emails.
