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.
