Mailbox overflowing with missives

Information Technology Services will be making changes to the University’s email system on Thursday, April 30. No outages are anticipated as part of the upgrades and IT Services expects the email system to be more usable and robust as well as able to handle higher volumes with increased security.

As part of the changes, users who receive daily Spam Digest emails will now need to check their Junk folders in Outlook for any potential missed emails. If you identify any mail that is legitimate, right click on the email, and select Junk -> Not Junk in the menu options.
