Recently I have noticed an increase in messages sent to my junk mail folder. Why am I receiving so much more junk mail than I used to?

In November 2013 Microsoft decided to discontinue the use of the Forefront Online Protection (Quarantine) System. This system (controlled exclusively by Microsoft outside of the Ball State environment) offered an additional spam-filter, preventing an allotment of spam from reaching your mailbox. Because this filter is no longer in use you may notice more spam arriving in your inbox. For further questions regarding this change please contact the Technology Helpdesk at 765-285-1517.
