Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) recently transitioned MIT’s email security and malware detection infrastructure to Exchange Online Protection, a cloud-based component of Microsoft Exchange and Office 365. Spam quarantine reports are now being sent from firstname.lastname@example.org to all @mit.edu email addresses.
While Microsoft’s Exchange Online Protection is more resilient and scalable than the formerly used Spam Quarantine service, it does require end users to make some changes to customize their spam-screening. These changes include how to:
- Find and release messages being held as spam
- Set up Allow and Block lists (“good” and “bad” senders)
Community members can make these changes from their protection.office.comhomepage.
