New Spam Email Filter for Faculty and Staff

FireEye ETP will replace SonicWall as the new email spam filter


Effective June 2, 2018, faculty and staff can view email messages that were flagged as SPAM in a new way. The university will implement FireEye Email Threat Prevention (ETP) to all email accounts. ETM protects against advanced email attacks by filtering inbound email and their attachments for SPAM viruses, phishing, policy violations, and other advanced threats. Employees do not need to take any action to install the new ETP program. 

What's different?

Users receive an email each morning around 6 a.m. that lists messages sent to their email account that were quarantined as SPAM. If an email is not SPAM, users can simply click the “Release” button to have the message delivered to their Inbox.
