Though the university employs various email protection services, some Spam or unwanted mail is bound to show up in your Inbox. There are several recommended options you can choose from to deal with this type of mail.
1. Delete the message
Simply deleting the message is the fastest way to deal with Spam.
2. Unsubscribe, then delete
If the message offers a link to Unsubscribe from future messages, you can try that. Just don't fill out any subsequent form with personal information or passwords. At the most, the unsubscribe form should ask for your email address, nothing else. If it asks for more, consider blocking the sender instead.
3. Block the sender
If you continue to receive Spam from the same sender, you can block all messages from the sender via the ProofPoint interface.
4. Report Suspicious
For any unwanted message that looks suspicious, especially those with links that are urgently requesting you login somewhere, you can use the Report Suspicious button in Outlook.
With the message open in the reading pane, click Report Suspicious:
A copy of the message will be sent to ProofPoint for analysis. You will receive a reply from ProofPoint when the analysis is complete.
5. Forward to email@example.com
If you question the legitimacy of any message, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org A member of IT will review the message and reply to you with findings/recommendations.
