Postini Service Changes for Faculty and Staff
Our current e-mail spam and virus filtering service, Postini, is in the process of transitioning to Google Apps services. This transition will soon be affecting our e-mail spam and virus filtering features. ITS is evaluating the impact these changes will have from both the end-user and administrative perspectives. ITS is committed to finding the best solution to meet the University’s needs. We will keep the department IMOs posted in the coming weeks and provide additional details as they become available.
