Digest Sets in Mimecast


When emails are held by certain gateway policies, Mimecast will send a Digest Set notification to the users to notify them of the emails on hold. From the Digest Set, users can opt to release emails, as well as add a Block or Permit entry in their Managed Senders list.

The Digest Set policies determine which held emails are included in the notification and when the notifications are sent to users.
