Digressing slightly as I have no experience with a Barracuda, you can
use MailWatch + MailScanner to get the graphical interface your uers crave.

Mailwatch allows user controlled white/blacklist, intelligent
quarantining/reporting plus a shiny front-end to see what's flowing
through your MailScanner box.

If you want support, then Defender MX (which is basically MailScanner,
MailWatch and other bits and bobs) from FSL should do the trick.
