UCCS Spam Filter Change Tomorrow

Posted on March 20th, 2017 by Help Desk

As part of our email system upgrade, we will be transitioning to a new spam filter starting tomorrow (3/21/17). At that time, the system that we currently use to manage spam, ProofPoint, will be replaced by our new spam filter from Microsoft.

Currently ProofPoint sends users an email up to twice per day with a digest of the quarantined emails as well as emails from email addresses. Once the new system is implemented, users will receive one digest email per day from Microsoft ( containing all of the quarantined email messages they received since the one prior. The new digest looks and operates similarly to ProofPoint, users can release quarantined emails to themselves and “report items as not junk” through the new system.

Users can also manage quarantined items online through Microsoft’s quarantine portal here:

Documentation and other information regarding the new spam filter can be found at the following link, then clicking on “Managing the Microsoft Spam Filter” at the bottom of the page:

Please contact us with any questions.
