SPAM RELIEF


Tired of the bombardment of ads and unwanted
email?
ITS has installed and tested new software to help you filter unwanted
spam from email.


Called SpamAssassin, it scans all
messages sent to PSU servers for attributes commonly associated with spam. It
then gives them a ‘score’ based on the number of attributes found. What happens
next is up to you.


SpamAssassin is an ‘opt in’ service.

for detailed information. There you will find instructions. Users also indicate
the level of desired protection from spam (low, medium or high). Use of the
SpamAssassin filtering requires periodic review of mails caught ‘in the net,’ so
to speak, to ensure that legitimate emails are not overlooked. 


SpamAssassin is not a cure-all. And, it requires
vigilance on your part. It may, however, stem the flow of most mass marketing
and offensive emails
. For more information, visit the site above or call the
ITS Help Desk at x2929.
