Subject: Changes to Spam Management

You've received this message because your Western Spam Filter is configured to tag spam as "[Spam?]" when delivered to your Inbox.

Effective March 8, 2010, spam messages will be held in a SpamTrap, rather than tagged and delivered. Daily e-mail notifications will summarize the contents of your SpamTrap and provide you with 3 easy choices:

* Deleting all trapped messages
* Delivering selected messages and deleting the rest
* Logging in to SpamTrap to manage your spam and filter settings

The benefits of trapping spam in your SpamTrap include:

* Spam is not counted in email quota - spam messages in your "trap" no longer part of your e-mail quota
* Automated spam removal - messages trapped for more than 30 days are automatically deleted
* Improved message management – summary message containing all spam versus individual messages
* Increased control - ability to create personal safelists, training your filter to improve the accuracy

If you have any questions regarding this change please contact the ITS HelpDesk:
