We are constantly enhancing our ability to detect and remove spam (unsolicited email) from campus mailboxes. Of the approximately 4 million messages that UC San Diego receives every day, we currently classify and block 80 percent as spam or viruses. To manage the remaining spam messages that get through our first line of defense, I am pleased to announce the availability of the UCSD Spam Preferences Tool. This new service provides the following options:
- Quarantine (recommended): Suspected spam is held in a quarantine area separate from your mailbox. You receive spam quarantine notifications twice a day if you have new quarantined mail.
- Tag: Detected spam is delivered and tagged with the email header "X-Spam-Status Yes". If you choose this option, you can also set up personal spam filters to filter tagged mail.
- Drop: With the Drop option, detected spam messages are not delivered to your mailbox and cannot be recovered.
Information and instructions for choosing your spam preferences can be found at: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/spam
This service is available to all faculty, staff, and students using @ucsd.edu email addresses. If your department uses an alternate delivery domain please talk to your systems administrator about possible options.
If you have additional questions, please contact the ACT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-534-1853.
