Spam Filtering

The University provides email spam* and virus checking for faculty and staff through a system appliance that works with Exchange to filter out potentially dangerous emails. However, some dangerous email will still get through the filters and it is up to the user to understand and be able to identify the occasional bad email that gets through. Further, the appliance does not remove what might be considered "junk mail". Microsoft Exchange will attempt to identify some junk mail (i.e. harmless sales spam) and flag it, but it lets most through. It is up to the individual user to decide what is or isn't junk mail and block it through Outlook.

*What does "spam" mean?
There is a Monty Python sketch about someone going into a restaurant to order breakfast. No matter what he orders, part of the order is "Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam...". He argues that he doesn't like Spam. The waitress tries to placate him by offering him "Spam, spam, and spam. That's only got a little Spam in it." Early geek culture revolved around things like Monty Python, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings. Spam became a metaphor for getting a lot of something you don't want and never asked for.
