Spam E-Mail Protection


Malicious software, viruses, and malware often come through email spam messages. Infected computers can have a disastrous effect on the USF Health network. They can also put a strain on the campus's ability to accomplish core business activities and instructional functions. In order to protect the campus computing infrastructure, we have a spam protection system in place that attempts to prevent malicious messages from reaching your inbox. In some cases legitimate messages will be captured in the spam filter, but the system allows customers to release legitimate messages from the system. A daily report is emailed to each customer showing what messages are captured in their spam queue.
