If the Reason for a message in your Message Log displays as Email Categorization, the email from this sender is categorized as not necessarily spam, but something that you may have subscribed to at one time but no longer want to receive. For example, newsletters and memberships, or marketing information. Email Categorization assigns some of these emails to specific categories, which the administrator can decide to allow, block, or quarantine. Supported categories display in the Message.
