Threat alert emails

I see threat alerts as critical but no words of block. Are these still getting thru even if flagged as an alert? How do I verify or change to alert and block?

You can verify the action taken by looking at the associated threat logs on the firewall. If it says 'alert' then the firewall didn't block the activity. 


Personally my default assigned profile has critical and high severity alerts set to reset-both for client and server traffic. This voids the default action so that whatever signatures match this severity aren't allowed by default, and then I can make overrides as required. The downside to this method is that sometimes PAN will set a disruptive signature to alert at first to verify that they don't have any false positives before they change the default action; in this instance if I were to see false positives I need to manually override these specific signatures.
