The anti-spam service in the current IUP e-mail environment will aid in identifying and handling messages that may be spam.
The anti-spam service uses content filtering to determine if a message should be considered spam. Therefore, as with any anti-spam utility, there is a risk that some legitimate e-mail messages will be flagged as spam (i.e., false-positives). The anti-spam service will take appropriate action—flag the message in your Inbox or deliver the message to the JunkMail folder—based on the existence of the JunkMail folder. You must then review the spam messages to make a decision (spam or not spam) and take one of several actions:
It is important to note that you must review the flagged messages in your e-mail account, and handle them accordingly so that you do not exceed your e-mail quota. Messages that are delivered to your JunkMail folder still count toward your overall e-mail quota.
The steps below should be followed if you wish to opt out (or turn off) the anti-spam service on your IUP e-mail account.
Before opting in to the anti-spam service, you must decide if you want to have potential spam flagged in your inbox, or moved to a JunkMail folder.
If you want to utilize the JunkMail folder, you will need to create the folder before you continue. See How to Create the JunkMail Folder.
Whitelisting & Blacklisting
The whitelist identifies e-mail addresses or subdomains which will bypass the content filtering of the anti-spam service. If you receive an e-mail message from an e-mail address or subdomain on your whitelist, it will never be flagged as spam.
The blacklist identifies e-mail addresses or subdomains that will always be flagged as spam, unless the e-mail address or subdomain appears on your whitelist.
In the Automated listing settings of the anti-spam service, the default settings are:
