Exchange online quarantine notifications


We have Exchange online, when a message is quarantined  I don't get notifications (I am the Exchange Admin).
I would like to to get notifications when a message is quarantined but I cannot find where to configure it.

You need to enable End User Spam Notifications.

In the Exchange admin center (EAC), navigate to Protection > Spam filter.
Select your policy (default by default)
In the bottom right is "Configure End User Spam Notifications"

To my knowledge there is no way of you as an admin receiving "spam notifications" except for outbound.

maybe after enabling that option, you can create transport rule that will BCC messages with spam notification to admin?

I found the problem,

Under mail flow rules there is a rule that blocks zips, its set to generate an incident report and send it to... Send incident report to: USER, with content: custom content and deliver the message to the hosted quarantine.

The problem was the USER no longer existed. I add a valid user now it works.
