Facts about E-mail, Spam, and Viruses
Spam (unsolicited e-mail) is a serious problem. Our 75 faculty and staff receive over 1 million e-mail messages per year! Of those, only 15% were allowed through to their inboxes; the other 85% were rejected due to viruses, foul or spam specific language, known spam sender addresses, etc.
What causes email (including sometimes legitimate email) to be classified as spam?
Sometimes legitimate e-mail gets blocked as Spam due to a variety of reasons (address, content, format, etc.).
If you receive an e-mail message indicating that a message you sent to a St. Francis faculty or staff e-mail address was blocked, please forward the blocked message to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can troubleshoot the problem. You can also send the original e-mail message to the same email@example.com account and we will forward the message on to the appropriate faculty or staff member.
