How to recover access to your Barracuda Spam Firewall account

This article describes how to recover access to your Barracuda Spam Firewall account. Normally, you receive periodic quarantine reports from Barracuda Spam Firewall in your inbox. These quarantine reports contain hyperlinks that enable you to directly access your Barracuda account.
