Once you have forwarded your email, your email will be affected by the new account server you choose to forward to and will be subject to its blocked and black lists. Even the major email providers have at times blocked email from Iowa State University. ITS can only provide support to Iowa State email and cannot help once it has left Iowa State University.
This service is separate from, and precedes, Outlook (and other email client) Spam Filters. If you would like to reject even more spam using your email client and the PerlMX tags placed on all incoming messages, follow the instructions for your email client on the spam page at http://www.it.iastate.edu/spam/.
All university email accounts will automatically have the new spam rejection applied*. However, if you would like to opt-out of the new spam rejection:
To opt out of greylisting, follow the same basic instructions, but choose View/Edit your e-mail greylisting opt-in/opt-out settings in step 3.
If you have already opted out of greylisting, you will be automatically opted out of spam rejection. To opt back in, follow the above instructions, but in step 4, click “Opt In for Spam Blocking”.
To make certain legitimate communications are not disrupted, senders will be notified if their message was rejected.
If you have any further questions about spam and your university email account, please refer to the spam page at http://www.it.iastate.edu/spam/, the spam FAQ at http://www.it.iastate.edu/spam/faq.html, or contact the IT Services Solution Center at 515-294-4000.
