ITS has removed e-mail routing through the old Washburn mail system. E-mails to @washburn.edu addresses are now being delivered directly to Microsoft Office 365.
For the most part, this change will not be noticeable to you. Key changes:
- E-mail spam filtering is no longer being done via the Barracuda Spam firewalls
- E-mails will no longer arrive with [SPAM] or [POSSIBLE SPAM] headers
- You will no longer receive e-mail quarantine reports (with a possible exception of a last one for today)
- Spam filtering is being perform by Microsoft Office 365 anti-spam systems and suspected spam is delivered to your “Junk Email” folder
Let us know if you have any questions. We’re preparing additional guidance on managing your spam settings and will publish that shortly. Microsoft documentation on spam management in Office 365 can be found at this link:
