A Bulk Mail filter on central University mail will go into effect Monday
Your participation is needed to ensure you do not lose any subscriptions
or other bulk mail you've requested.
In an effort to reduce the amount of spam, IST is pleased to announce
that a bulk mail filter (DCC) will be activated on the University's
central mail servers, cc.umanitoba.ca and ms.umanitoba.ca, as of
Monday, March 24.
To read more about the bulk mail filter, you can start from the
ACN home page at:
and under "IST/ACN Computing News" click on
"Bulk Mail Blocking -
AVOID LOSING MAIL"
You can check your bulk mail summaries on a web page or have them mailed
to you each week. Both methods are available at:
Presentations are being scheduled over the next two weeks on the bulk
mail filtering and white list. They are currently scheduled for:
Monday, March 17. 12:05-1:00 pm. Theatre C. Basic Med Sciences
Monday, March 17. 1:30-2:30 pm. Theatre C. Basic Med Sciences
Fort Garry campus:
Tuesday. March 18. 1:00-2:00 pm. IST Theatre-160 Dafoe Bldg (off Library lobby)
Wednesday, March 19 1:15-2:15 pm. IST Theatre-160 Dafoe Bldg. (off Library lobby)
Thursday, March 20 2:00-3:00 pm. 340 University Centre. Microcomputer Centre.
Tuesday, March 25 1:30-2:30 pm. 340 University Centre. Microcomputer Centre
More presentations will be scheduled as needed.
In summary it is important to:
- start now checking your bulk mail summary to
catch good mail and white list it.
- develop the habit of checking the bulk mail summary on an
ongoing basis into the future. Since it is only kept for
seven days, choosing the mailout subscription method may
be preferable at the start.
We hope this service will be of assistance in reducing spam though it
will not catch all of it.
Your feedback on how this bulk filtering approach works for you in the
weeks ahead will be very important in shaping our maintainence and
support of it.
