How ITS Protects Your Email


The campus email system applies antivirus/worm and anti-spam filtering at selected points as email moves into, out of, and through the campus network. The following is a summary of where and how these protections are applied. This information only applies to Outlook (Exchange server).


  • Email arriving from the Internet is scanned for viruses and spam by an anti-virus/anti-spam engine. Messages containing viruses or spam are deleted.

  • Email that is sent outbound through Exchange is not scanned for anti-virus or anti-spam.

  • Email inbound to the University Exchange server is scanned.

  • Desktop antivirus software applications also scan incoming and outgoing email in some, but not all, cases.
