Getting Started with Campus Email

Your Campus Email

An Email account is created for all faculty, staff, and students of the University.  Specific information is only a click away for Faculty and Staff e-mail and Student email.

Email Phishing Schemes

The tell-tale sign of an email scam is when someone requests your username and password.  Simply put, do not respond

If you have any question about the validity of an email you receive, please contact the Faculty/Staff Helpdesk at x4790.

Spam/Junk E-mail

Spam is essentially junk mail in electronic form.  It is unsolicited advertisements and unwanted mass mailings.  Approximatey 99% of the email we receive from off-campus is spam and, as a result, we employ a spam filtering service.  If you are receiving spam messages, please forward them to our spam filtering service at so they can be more effective at blocking out junk email.

Blocking Unwanted Emails

Would you like to block Emails from specific people?  In Outlook, you can prevent future e-mails from arriving into your inbox from that person’s Email account. Here’s how:

Right-click on the Email one time. This will bring up a listing of options … choose Junk Email. From there, choose Add Sender to Blocked Senders List.

Outlook also lets you prevent Emails from an entire domain from getting into your inbox. 

To do so, first open Outlook.  Click on the Tools menu, then Options. Choose the Preferences tab, then under Email, click on Junk Email.  Click the Blocked Senders tab, then click Add.  In the box Enter an Email address or Internet domain name to be added to the list, enter the address you want added, then click OK (the domain would be the "@" sign plus anything that follows it). 

You can repeat the process for each name or address that you want to block.
