Spam Filtering

The College uses an appliance called Barracuda Spam Firewall to filter incoming email for spam. Over 90% of all incoming email is blocked by Barracuda. Suspected spam is quarantined. Email messages will be checked by Barracuda when they arrive and directed to your mailbox or to a quarantined area, based on a spam score value. You will receive a daily Spam Quarantine Summary email containing a list of all messages Barracuda has quarantined, for you, for that day. The list presented in the email will allow you to manage your quarantined messages and determine what you want to classify as spam.
