MC277638: Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Integration of submission from quarantine with Admin and User Submission

Admin/ User Submissions coming from the quarantine portal were slotted into a separate submission channel than the channel that was used for the Admin submission coming from the submission portal and the user submission coming from the outlook report message Add-in. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82097.

With this change we’re giving admins the ability to allow senders for a specified period of time, right from the quarantine workflow. When releasing emails to end users, admins can now opt to remember this decision by creating an entry in the tenant allow/block list that corresponds to the indicator of compromise aligned with the message in question. Admins can now choose to allow or prevent users from submitting messages to Microsoft for analysis.

MC277638: Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Integration of submission from quarantine with Admin and User Submission

Maintaining two different submission channel increases the time it takes for submissions made to Microsoft to be graded. With this integration, there will be a reduction in the times it take for submission made to Microsoft to be graded.

In addition, we provide End users with the ability to report messages to Microsoft from the quarantine console without giving the Admins the ability to disable this functionality. With this integration, Admin will now have the ability toggle the end user report message capability in quarantine On or Off.
