I am getting messages from Exchange as follows:
Subject: Delivery Notification - Re:

The message or an attachment did not reach the intended recipient(s).

  Subject: Re:( blah blah )
     From: abc@xyz.com
       To: def@mydomain.com
     Date: Wed, 26 Mar 2014 18:22:43 -0600

   Reason: Message contains an encrypted ZIP file
   Action: quarantine

How do I access this quarantine ? This is message from a trusted sender and we need it and they will not send un-encrypted files

I have created a user quarantine with a mailbox quarantine since I read that this mailbox is not created automatically. but how do I make sure the messages of this type end up there and can be viewed if necessary

SBS should have already setup the content filter, but the quarantine may not be configured.

This is the article on how to configure the quarantine mailbox:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123746(v=exchg.150).aspx

It should be a dedicated mailbox, rather than trying to use an existing one (like administrator or something like that)

This is how to recover the items from the quarantine mailbox:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998920(v=exchg.150).aspx

However if the quarantine mailbox was not setup but the content filter is setup to quarantine then the attachment is probably lost, because Exchange had no where to send it.

Whenever I use the commands in either DOS mode or powershell like "Set-Contentfilter" or any other command mentioned in the article I get a response that it is not recognized command function or script.
What am I missing here ?

You aren't using the right shell. You need to use Exchange Management Shell, not Powershell or a command Prompt.
