    Click your preferred email format, text formatted emails are more simple, since they do not contain any HTML code, but HTML emails can contain direct links to things such as quarantined messages.
    Here is a description of the options from the official McAfee Documentation:
    Text - Summary Sends a Text (email) Message containing a count of the number of new messages in the user's quarantine, a total count of all messages in the user's quarantine (if it is different from the new count), and a link to the user's quarantine. (No message details are contained in this message.)
    All quarantined items Sends an HTML (email) message containing an HTML table of all Spam messages in the User's Quarantine.
    HTML - New items since last report Sends an HTML (email) message containing an HTML table of any new quarantined spam messages since the user's last report.
    Text - New items since last report  Sends a Text (email) Message noting the number of new messages in the user's quarantine, as well as a Text Summary grid containing message details for all new Spam messages in the User's Quarantine.
  4. Click the Apply button to record your selection. You will see a message in the Control Console stating "The Preferences were updated successfully."
