Valencia receives more than 3 Million e-mails a month!
More than 2 Million of them are SPAM
Valencia has been using the Barracuda Spam Firewall to block viruses and SPAM. When something was quarantined you received a Quarantined message from the Barracuda system advising you. You may have also received an e-mail with [SPAM] added to the subject line.
Another layer of protection is now being added. Valencia will scan all e-mail with
Microsoft Forefront Online Protection
This added layer of protection for the College will be the primary SPAM filter so you will receive a MS Forefront Quarantined Summary. (The Barracuda SPAM filter will be the secondary and it is possible you may receive a summary from it, on occasion.) The subject line will be “Spam quarantine Notification:” with the number of new messages. When that happens open the e-mail, review what is being quarantined and if you decide there is one that needs to be delivered you only need to click on “Move to Inbox” at which time you will be asked for a user name and password. (Note: The password does not sync automatically (single sign-on) you’ll need to know your password or request it from the system. Click on “Need your password?)
Enter your firstname.lastname@example.org
followed by your password. (If you get a Security Warning pop-up select Yes)
You will then see a screen window similar to your Outlook e-mail
