Middlebury ITS is preparing to introduce a new email security service. Over the next few weeks, ITS will begin routing Middlebury email messages through Microsoft’s email message security service, Exchange Online Protection. Microsoft’s service will perform spam filtering, anti-virus, and other security checks on inbound and outbound Internet email.
The way you ACCESS email WILL NOT need to CHANGE in order for you to benefit from this service. Outlook and Outlook Web Access, for example, will continue to behave just as they always have.
How you ALLOW or BLOCK email from specific senders WILL CHANGE. With Exchange Online Protection, you will be able to manage blocked and allowed senders right from within Outlook and Outlook Web Access, using the Safe Senders and Junk Mail tools. For tips on how to use Safe Senders and Junk Mail, please see the following Microsoft articles:
- Spam filtering at Middlebury
- Outlook Web Access – Block or allow (junk email settings)
- Outlook – Use Junk Email Filters to control which messages you see
