Exchange 2007 quarantine mail retrieval

Hi

I have an Exchange 2007 single server setup with the Anti Spam agents registered and instaledl.  I have the content filter set to guarantine certain e-mail messages and send the quarantine mails to the admin mailbox.  My problem is that I would like to be able to retrieve the e-mails that have been quarantined.   In the admin mailbox all I get is who the sender is and a copy of the message headers but no means to retrieve the mail if it is legitimate.

Are these messages stored anywhere that I can retrieve them from?

You have to setup an Outlook installation correctly to manage the quarantine.
It is advised that you use a special account on its own storage group.

These two Technet articles explain what you need to do.

Thanks.  I didn't know about the option to resend once you open the spam mail hence being a noob.  I didn't have to configure anything specific.
